New HDD won't show up in disk management

Hello, I bought a new HDD (WD Black 2tb) today. Plugged it in correctly, it shows up in BIOS and it shows up in Device Manager, but it doesn't show up in disk management so I can initialize and partition it. I've tried googling but none of the results helped or the problems people had weren't similar to mine.

My Motherboard is Maximus VI Hero and CPU is i7 4770k if that helps with anything.

I am currently running on SSD with Windows 8.1 x64 installed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: solved it by deleting partitions in Hiren's boot]
