I recently purchased a Seagate Barracuda 3TB drive (ST3000DM001) and I'm trying to get it to work on Windows 8. I've an old motherboard Asus P5K Premium.
The system recognizes as 2.7GB, I create a new partition with 1000GB but when go to the formatting it fails.
I've tried with MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition for Windows and also tried GParted in Linux but the NTFS formatting fails every time.
But the strange situation here is when I do a clean linux installation on the disk, I got the 2.7GB available and the system working normally.
What can be the problem?
ps: Also tried to install the Asus Unlocker application but for an unknown reason the installation fails on my system.
When I try to format with Computer Management, after a few minutes it shows "The format did not complete successfully".
When I try to mark partition as active it shows "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error"
