I just purchased a new Dell Inspiron 660 with Windows 8. Tried to install a new Seagate 3T HDD. Windows disk manager does not see the HDD. The HDD is seen by the BIOS. I can change SATA ports and the BIOS will see the change. I just can't get Windows disk manager to see the drive. Any help appreciated
This is most likely due to the 3TB size. Even if you could see it, it probably would show up as 746GB drive. Use GParted live CD to partition and format it first.
