@LandShark Thanks for the feedback. I gave up for a bit as the upgrade wasn't urgent, but I got back on to it tonight.
I did not have success when I was connecting the HDD into the SATA 3.5 port of the motherboard.
However, I had success when I unplugged the DVD-RAM from the SATA 3.4 and plugged the HDD in the SATA 3.4 port. After this, the computer recognized the hard disk drive and I'm able to use the hard disk drive.
Is it possible that the SATA 3.5 port is not enabled? How can this port be enabled?
Taking a look at the specs of the B742, most of the builds came with an M.2 SSD. This will disable one of the SATA ports on the motherboard, which might be the port you were using when plugging in your HDD. It disables the port so that it can be used for the M.2 Drive.
