    With the drive powered on at boot, BIOS > Advanced > Storage Configuration > eSATAII_1 , does it(the ext drive) show up on this line or not?

    Sorry I missed that.

    Depending upon the external USB drive enclosure, to what USB port(s) it is connected to (USB 2.0, USB 3.0), and the 2.5" HDD itself, power from a USB port may not be enough for the drive to function. Some 2.5" HDDs need 1 - 1.5 Amps of power to work, a single USB 2.0 port normally does not provide even one Amp of power.

    If the 2.5" HDD is unformatted, it won't be seen by Windows until it is initialized and formatted.

    Your external USB enclosure remains a mystery.

    Yes, but you've also changed to a different HDD, the 2.5" laptop drive, which apparently also does not appear in the BIOS...
