I having a 2TB wd hard disk as primary (MTB) and recently added a 1TB hard disk to it, And formated it with Disk manager. When it asked for the format i selected it as GPT partision, The odisk is formated and shown in the system.
After a restart the new hard disk is not detected and it is not eve shown in Bios.

  1. Check the connections to the 1tb drive. It's got to show up in bios before you can use it.
  2. hi,

    Sorry for the delayed response ...
    The harddisk(1TB Hitachi Harddisk, Partion : MTB) is dispayed as "Unknown Disk" in the device manager.
    The 1tb disk is not shown in the Disk manager!
    When i connected the same hard disk in another computer it is displayed as only"[]" in the seta port.
    I think the harddisk is gone. Is there any way to check and reformat the drive?

    Thanks,
    C. Vignesh.

  3. There is a test from Hitachi but it probably won't work if your computer can't see the drive.
