  1. I have a new drive that I want to install. I bought it months ago and only have the HD and cables. I put it in the machine and the BIOS recognizes it but I cannot see it in My Computer. I know in the good old days I could run FDISK , format it and be done with it. What am I missing now?

    Click start, run and type diskmgmt.msc and have a look for it there. If you are not sure what to do then take and post a screenshot.

    Thanks

    This seemed to do the trick. One question, It is coming up as a dynamic drive vs my others as basic. Is there a major difference?

    That just means that it can be raided if memory serves.
