Cool! I did as you said and cleaned the 4TB drive.

I then unplugged the drive to avoid the WIN 7 installation (Bitlocker) loading any files onto it.

On completion of the install I reconnected the 4TB drive.

I checked the Bios and saw the 4TB drive, then ran Windows.

In Windows, I went to Device Manager and got prompted to configure the new drive as MBR or GPT - I chose GPT.

So I could now see the 4TB drive in Device Manager as one partition, but I can't see it in My Computer.

baby steps...


Realised later after a break that I need to format as NTFS and apply a drive name.

Did this and now is all good! laugh.gif

Now just have to check my IR receiver, load PowerDVD, VLAN and Media Portal and I'll be back in business.

Your help has been invaluable - thanks heaps! rolleyes.gif
