P67 & 4TB HDD reconisation issues, looking at options to make this work

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

My System (in my sig) don't want to recognize the Seagate 4TB hdd that I bought (stuck at 1.6 gig)

I brought it up to my office and hook it up to my new computer, initialize the drive @ "4TB" no issues.

BOTH are running W7 64 bits.

Now I want options if my home system don't want to see it as it is.

What I have in mind is:

1- Change the MB and CPU toward a Z87 chipset

2- Look for a Raid external card that will handle the 4TB no issues.

Any body have other options or suggestions?

Update your BIOS. And make sure the drive is formatted GPT and not MBR.

You may have to install the latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver as well.

TY,

Bios was updated to the latest
The format too.
As for intel rapid storage not sure I used it.

Anyway it seems it was really a bad initialization since I did it at work, plug it into my new PC and all was good afterward...

Side questions, somebody knows how to "re-initialise" a HDD if ever something similar occur?

you can uninitialize it and reinitialize it all day if you want with disk management and diskpart. Use diskpart (CMD tool) and "select disk #" and then use the "clean" command to wipe it. Then in disk management just right click the disk # and initialize it and format it.
