Read "The Manual Initialization Method" where we get to write the "signature" to the drive.
I just added a second hard drive to my Dell Dimention 4550 running Windows XP. Everything went great. I set the jumper, installed the new drive and powered the pc.
The hardware wizard came up and detected the new drive.
I then went to Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management. My new drive is shown in the lower part of the screen as Disk 1.
I know I need to initialize and format the disk. I looked over the help which said that this could be done by right clicking the drive on the disk management screen.
The problem is the new drive does not appear in the upper part of the Disk Management display.
How in the heck do you initialize a new hard drive. I can usually figure this stuff out but I give.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
