If this is a brand new drive it has not been partitioned and formatted.

in English, the drive has not been prepared for use. if the drive has worked before then possible problems are worn out power supply (if it uses one) - would need to be replaced. Or the hard drive has failed, if you hear clicking sounds or similar, the issue is probably a bad drive or in some cases the drive might not be getting enough power from the power supply and it just clicks because of that, in that case replacing the power supply would help.

if this is the first time you are using the drive it needs to be partitioned and formatted. right click on my computer or computer icon in your desktop or in the start menu, select manage. then on the left side click on disk management, on the right side, you may get a notification about the drive needing to be initialized. You need to partition the drive, right click on it and select create partition, simply click next next next, when you are given a option to check a box that reads QUICK FORMAT. click on it. this will save about a hour or more of your time.

after this the drive will appear and will be ready for use.

Fujitsu sata mhv2080bh 80GB drive partition in windows 7


Not sure what your question is but it seems like you are having some type of partition size issue with windows 7. I see that you say you have an 80GB drive which is very small so there is not much to partition on it.

You can't find the drivers because you don't need drivers for it, and since Beyond Micro went out of business they have no support for the drive anymore. Time to drop kick that baby back to the stone age.

Cannot install whs on ssd using flash drive


I would suggest cloning the OS install.
Install the OS on the 80GB SSD with the Foxconn board that is giving you troubles with the 40GB SSD. Then clone the drives and swap SSDs.
WHS 2011 probably will throw up a flag stating that it needs to be reactivated because of hardware changes, but it should go smoothly.

I have a Maxtor Personal Storage 80GB and my Windows 7 does not recognize it.


is this device being hooked up exactly the same way as your last OS , make sure you have both cables hooked up , make sure your
device is spinning up to the max RPM , if max RPM is not reached
the HDD will not work on any system , also if your windows 7 is
a 64bit version the utility disk that was provided will not work
from the old 32bit windows OS even if you were using windows
XP 64bit , go to Maxtor online inquire about 64bit windows 7 drivers
for that device .

I have a 80GB disk, but only 30GB is a recognized partition by Windows.i need instructions


Most likely the problem is that you have another blank partition. The Microsoft disk management tool can probably solve this. This is a tutorial on how to use it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000/

Let us know if this works out for you.

Was this 80GB cloned (copied) from an old 30GB disk?

Open Computer Management window doing this:

Start button - settings - control panel - administrative tools - computer management.
In the window that open, on the left hand side pane, expand Storage and click Disk Management. On the left hand side window, lower pane you should see a list of disks. See Disk 0,Basic <disk size>, Online. Do you see the 80GB as disk size? To the right you would see a series of boxes. Probably you see (C:) 30GB NTFS Healthy (system). Do you see to the right of it a box with 50GB (unknown partition)?

If so, you do have a 80GB disk, but only 30GB is a recognized partition by Windows. You can still use the the unknown partition. Post back here if you need instructions.
