  1. right click on your old hd and select format, the disk format must be ntfs so you can use it for internal storage and rename the volume name you desired
  2. sorry im not by my pc right now nor am i super computer savy. but ntfs? not sure what that means

    since ntfs is a standard format for partitions used in windows and it has a greater performance than fat, but don't worry, ntfs is set as default when formatting a hard drive.
