    You might have a problem with this new drive, but maybe not. An installation of Win 7 will normally use a Full Format operation on the HDD, and that does take a long time. Last time I did that operation on a 1.5 TB WD Green it took over 3 hours just to do the Full Format without doing any installation of an OS. So if the on-screen progress bars show you continuous progress, it may be that all you need is more patience.

    so this wd 1tb green suitable to be a primary harddisk?
  3. Yes, no problem. Is the Install process still running, or did you cancel it? If you canceled I have a couple suggestions before re-starting, but do NOT stop it after 4 hours if it appears still to be making progress.
  4. I had Windows 7 installed on a 1TB WD Green disk and it ran just fine. But it will take a LONG time to completely format.
