Need help with a hard drive..

I installed a hard drive in my buddy's computer, and I need to format it. The BIOS recognizes it, Windows recognizes it, but since it's not formatted into a file system that Windows will see, I can't see it either.

How do I format this sum-bitch?

Win9X try FDISK then FORMAT on that drive from the Command prompt, right before you bootup into Windows hit F6, make sure there is no data on the drive before you try this.


Win2k and XP go into Computer MGMT and then into the Disk Mgmt section right click on the drive and choose format.

I'm thinking this is a bunk drive. No need to reply anymore.
