did the drive come with a disk from maxtor?
if not go to http://www.seagate.c...maxtor_desktop/ and download the maxblast bootable iso image...burn that to a cd as a bootable iso...then boot the pc to it...this tool will allow you to format and initialize the hard drive

I see. I guess it was stupid of me to go with a Quick. I've never done an install of windows, Was following a guide and that said to use quick as full takes too long -.- Download is done, Burning to CD now ^^ I should be here with a reply on how it goes within around 10 minutes or so =]
well...i tend to go with the full because i'm parranoid...but also when you're setting up a NEW hd....the full format actually builds the partition table...where as the quick just...well does things differently..

Ok.. I got no clue what to do XD
http://www.seagate.c...ata_jumpers.gif jumper settings for maxtor drives...you want your jumper (the little doodad on the back of the drive that "jumps" those pins) to match the first picture in the last box (the master setting) and you want to make sure that the drive is on the end connector of the cable that it's connected to not the center connector
