I bought a new computer yesterday and decided to add another hdd. Here is my new machine specs Gateway FX6710-01 with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400, 6 GB DDR2 SDRAM PC2-6400 ram, 750 GB -Serial ATA-300 - 7200 rpm, ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB, Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition. I have a Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EACS 1TB SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive that is Brand New. I Installed the hdd and everything looks OK Bios recognizes it Computer Management sees it When I try and format the disc so I can use it I get this Message The operation cannot be completed because the disk is not initialized What does this mean. I cannot figure this out. Any and all help is appreciated! In computer management > storage the hdd was showing I had to right click where it says Disk 1 not where the hdd storage information was. What a pain in the keister. When I would right click where the storage volume is I could create a simple volume but I would get the error message saying the disk was not initialized. Problem solved!
