Setting up new SSD?????

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
OK, so I got a 128gb Crucial M4 SSD, I also have a Samsung F3 1TB and Im following the sticky guide to set them up together http://www.overclock.net/ssd/664738-...secondary.html. I followed all the steps up until #4. Thats where it lost me. As I have never dealt with SSD's or partitions before I have no idea what to do or how to do it. To make it easier I attached a screenshot of my "Disk Manegamant" screen. I pretty much have no idea what to do. Can you guys help me on what to do next? Im not sure if the 1tb or SSD drives are where they're supposed to be or why the 1tb is unallocated or how to make it primary if thats is what needs to be done. Can you guys help me on what to do next?

Did you initialize the disk? You will have to right click disk 0 and select initialize.

It seems it is already initialized though...did you select the drive then right click?

yeah, it looks like you just need to format the drive, as seanwebster said.

Yep. You are meaning to format the SSD, right. Or do you mean the HDD.

yes but it has to be formatted for windows to be able to use it...

If it is showing up black like it is right now the HDD is totally working, it just needs to be formatted to NTFS format.
