I have a SeaGate Hard Disk (with 4TB capacity) which has the code number ST4000VX000-1F4168 (Surveillance HDD). I am trying to install Windows 7 in it and Windows 7 only detects 2TB capacity and not 4TB.
So, I followed the details explained in this link, I connected the 4TB Hard Disk to another computer as a secondary HDD.Then followed the details from the link above to make it GPT. Then the computer detected the 4TB. So I created 4 partitions (1TB each). Then connected the 4TB HDD back to the original computer and this time Windows 7 says it cannot install Windows on GPT partitions.
Then I followed the instructions on this YouTube video. This cleared the GPT partitions and removed all four partitions created. I was able to install Windows 7 but it could not be partitioned into four drives.
What I like to know is how to install Windows 7 on 4TB HDD (partition into four drives)? If I install Windows 10 instead of Windows 7, will it detect 4TB and will I be able to partition into four drives and install Windows 10?
