Thanks for such a quick reply! The HDD shows needing a jumper on the left most pair to be configured as a master. The HDD is a Seagate Barracuda, 7200, 400 Gig, P/N 9BD045-340. So I guess its off to Frys to get a batch of jumpers then. Do you think that would resolve my issue of not being able to initialize in Disk Management?
