When you initialize the new hard disk drive, it must be configured as an
extended partition in Windows NT file system (NTFS) format.
Log on in Windows® as Administrator.
Click Start in the Windows taskbar and right-click on My Computer.
A shortcut menu appears.
Select Manage. The Computer Management window appears.
From the file directory on the right, go to Storage and then select Disk
Right-click on the newly installed, unformatted drive (Disk label
identified with red marking), and from the shortcut menu, select
Click on the Unallocated area of the drive and then right-click to
display the shortcut menu.
Select New Partition. The New Partition wizard appears.
