You left out some details as the complete PC setup. I can assume this is SATA???, so what is the bios setup as? Is the HD plugged in where on mtrbd., numbered port or what type of port. Is the Seagate HD 2.5 or 3.5in. size, see how details matter. How was the HD formatted on what PC and was it accepted there not only by formatting, but by a reboot and seeing it "ready" for use. On top of all this, if the HD isn't acknowledged by the bios display during boot-up as Seagate XYZ?, then something is h/w amiss or setting.

but there is no leeway here and zero tolerance to piracy.

You already told us here that you are using a cracked version of Windows 7, and that means nothing can be discussed in these forums about your problems with this machine until you solve that.

I will just say, you thought in your other thread that the problem might be related to your cracked version of Windows 7. I would take that bet, so get legal and if you are still having the same problems call back in and see if anyone can help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
