It's a drive. Not much else to add given no OS and more. XP for instance might have issues with that size and again, doesn't understand the new 4K sector but it will work anyway (but a little slower.) That is widely discussed so all you need to do is to tell more.

I'm sure someone will debate that but here I could install it and use it.
