I recently swapped out my EXCELSTOR Jupiter Series ESJ8160S 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s for a seagate.

I wiped the excelstor clean with killdisk and now I want to use the excelstor to store stuff on it. My current computer will not recognize the excelstor. I burned EStest image from this site.

When I would boot up with only the excelstor it said not bootable drive. Even with the cd-r of the EStest image burned on it.

When I go to my computer i do not see the excelstor hdd.

When I got to device manager i do see the excelstor hdd and it says it is functioning properly.

Any suggestions on what to do?

Thanks

Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Disk Management -> if not prompted, right-click on the uninitialised drive -> Initialise -> Right-click on the empty size -> Format.

What type of partition should I use?

Extended or primary?

The only function I want the excelstor hdd is to store data on.
