HELLO, I am building a new computer and I just ordered two 1TB seagate HD's. I want to know if Windows XP Pro will format the drives on installation. I have never had a Hard drive of this size and I am wondering if I need to take special steps.

    XP only format the partition where you install the OS, but you can format the other partitions from the disk manager without problems.
