Seagate 4TB SSHD help needed.

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I got a good deal on it, but when I install it, only 1.6 TB shows up. Have done a heap of reading, but I'm stumped. I have set it to GPT and have done a few times, I also used diskpart to clean and reinitialize in disk manager multiple times, no luck. I've tried changing sata ports again, no luck. I'm running an UEFI bios so that shouldn't be the problem. I used seagate discwizard and that did nothing. I'm at a loss why it won't see the full capacity. My mobo is Maximus V Formula, 3770k. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, this is the drive. Seagate 3.5" SSHD 4TB ST4000DX001

Funny your PC is almost identical to mine except I have the MVE
I also just got a brand new 4Tb seagate drive 1 week ago installed smooth as.
All I can suggest is use a windows boot disk and format it with that. probably best unplug all your other drives first.

Can you do us a favour, and screen shot the disk manager screen, just so we can see how the drive setup looks in there. Also if you could screenshot any disk properties from the disk manager too, it might help us help you. smile.gif

I think I remember hearing about an issue like this before being an Intel RST driver. I think they actually installed a previous version rather than the latest if I recall correctly and it helped clear the issue. I know on boot drives larger than 2 TB it needs to be a UEFI Windows installation which would need to be set in BIOS beforehand, but as a storage disc I've never had one that didn't register correctly. As Latelesley said above some screenshots would help us out as well.

the Seagate is G Drive.


I wanted to use it for my steam games drive, currently F:, was going to copy over the contents, sick of juggling games on a small SSD. I know it will be slower to load etc, but not too concerned,. I have the other HDD, but want a separate steam drive.

Try the following:
Quote:
To change a master boot record disk into a GUID partition table disk using the Windows interface

Back up or move the data on the basic master boot record (MBR) disk you want to convert into a GUID partition table (GPT) disk.

If the disk contains any partitions or volumes, right-click any volumes on the disk and then click Delete Partition or Delete Volume.

Right-click the MBR disk that you want to change into a GPT disk, and then click Convert to GPT Disk.

To change a master boot record disk into a GUID partition table disk using a command line

Back up or move the data on the basic master boot record (MBR) disk you want to convert into a GUID partition table (GPT) disk.

Open an elevated command prompt (right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator) and type diskpart. If the disk does not contain any partitions or volumes, skip to step 6.

At the DISKPART prompt, type list disk. Make note of the disk number you want to convert.

At the DISKPART prompt, type select disk .

At the DISKPART prompt, type clean.

Important
Running the clean command will delete all partitions or volumes on the disk.

At the DISKPART prompt, type convert gpt.

Have you updated the Motherboard bios to the latest version?

Has the most up to date bios 1903. I'm thinking it's a faulty drive.
post #10 of 32
yup, something's not right there. It's like the BIOS is detecting it as a smaller drive.

Can you go into the BIOS, and have a look at what it is detecting it as?

Actually, I just found this, which could be exactly your issue. - http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/218615en

Also I seen the BIOS has an Intel RST setting in it too, maybe try disabling that, and see of an updated driver in the OS might sort it? (You want to look under Advanced / PCH configuration)
