    An interesting question for y'all.
    I have two GX620 Dells and I have just installed a second SATA HDD in each one.
    The computers do NOT recognize either one of the added HDs. The original HDs are recognized.

    Is this normal? Do I need to manually do something else?
    I have NOT changed anything in the BIOS. Should I?

    OK. the problem was found by going to BIOS. Evidently I had to "turn On" a second SATA Drive there
