Compatibility of 4TB HDD with my PC
« on: December 13, 2017, 05:18:42 pm »
Hi,

I have my PC with following config.:

Motherboard:   GA-B150M-D3H (1.0)
BIOS Ver:   F6
Brand:   GIGABYTE
Model:   intel core i3
Operating System:   Win 10 64-bit

I have recently ordered for one 4 TB internal hard disk:
"WD Blue 4TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache"

I want to understand if this HDD is going to be compatible with my PC. Pl. help.

The drive will be compatible if the BOS is UEFI compliant

Use a command prompt to format GPT. 

LISTDISK
SELECT 1 (or target disk #)
CLEAN
CONVERT GPT

Format and assign Drive letter

Sorry, it was the middle of the night when I replied to this message. 

First command is:

DISKPART (no spaces), then LIST DISK (has space), then SELECT DISK (has space)
