So after my HHD crapped out, just got in a new 1TB and am trying to install. It shows up in the bios, but when running recovery disks on the system, it craps out while formatting. I have also tried to format from command prompt but get a message saying the drive is not recognized. WTF? This is driving me crazy! Help me please...

Run the HDD manufacturer's diagnostic tool against the drive, eg SeaTools (Seagate), Data LifeGuard (Western Digital).
