SEAGATE hdd ST2000DL003. How do I get this HDD up and running?

Depending upon what kind of computer you are using, you might have to use an application which will allow you to partition this 2TB drive into smaller pieces. It is entirely possible that you have an older BIOS in your computer, or not enough RAM Memory, which will not allow you to deal with the new HDD in its full capacity, but will allow you to use it if repartitioned into smaller chunks, like 500 GB each. If so, making four 500 GB partitions in your 2 TB drive will be just as effective, but will give you four more drive labels, like G, H, I, and J to which you can write.

Good luck,

Your computer is not compatible with a Boot Hard drive with size of 2TB. The BIOS does not allow/support it.

You will need to install a smaller hard drive as the Boot drive for Windows and then use the 2TB drive as a slave drive.

2TB boot drives are supported by Intel's new 2nd Generation I3, I5 or I7 on the 1155 Socket.

Thumbs Up!

Take care!

The hard disk inside your unit is dying and the data on it gets corrupted. There's nothing you can do to fix that - either you open the case and replace the hard disk or you replace the entire unit.

According to Microsoft, Windows 7 must be installed on a primary partition. This error code means the installer hasn't found a primary partition on the target drive. The primary partition must be on the first hard drive in the boot order, and if you have more than one user partition (not counting the small drive table partition), you must install to the first user partition. Unfortunately MS doesn't seem to have a clear, comprehensive answer to the issue. I've gleaned the following from various forum responses.

For some reason the installer is date sensitive, so make sure the time and date are correct in the BIOS. Time your next install attempt so it will NOT go past midnight during the installation.

Check your BIOS settings to make sure the drive is listed as a "primary" drive (drive 0, not drive 1) rather than a secondary.

Some people have had problems with the Windows 7 installer on drives that have the Master Boot Record from previous installations. Try a FORMAT /MBR using the Windows 7 install CD. If this doesn't work,
  1. Use the partition command to remove the target partition from the drive to wipe this out
  2. Partition the now unused space and reformat (again!), and
  3. If the partition command or installer has an option to set a partition as primary (or something else), choose primary (disk 0) for the partition you want to use for Windows 7.
If all else fails, use your HP Software Recovery CD to do a complete repartition and reformat. You could use the Windows 7 partition command to do the same thing, but then you would lose the HP System Recovery partition. However, if HP is marking the System Recovery partition as partition 0, it could be causing the problem. In that case, see if HP has an updated version of the CD that includes a fix for this, or do without it and turn it all over to Windows 7.

Hi- We have a 2 TB tower partitioned into 4

Try downloading EASUS Partition manager I have not used this with FAT formats but it works fine with NTFS, and allows you to alter partition sizes without losing data.

As far as I know it is only supported by Windows, so you may have to use a Windows machine to re-partition.

Lacie Big Disk Quadra 3TB won't work with xp-32bit

One way around is to install Mac Drive on your system. First you format your hdd in HFS+ on a mac platform, with any size you want.Then, after you installed Mac drive on your PC, it will work.

HDD data recovery

most hard drives have that erie only 2 partitians at a time this is with your computer how it can handle since you made three particians there is a chance that it only allows partitions of only 2

say for instance you have a celeron your comp would only allow what you memmory can give you this would knock out the 2 partician when created the 3rd partician
not enough memmory to fill all 3 partitians

safe end to this particians in long run can hurt your comp more than help it i suggest buying another hdd to make your back ups or get a portable pull out system hdd this ensures your files are as easy to get as putting in a new hard drive
hope this gave some insite
