Upon restarting the computer, you will be asked how you want to install the drive. Typical or Custom...Choose Custom...click "Next"

Had something about 5 seconds to make a choice about some kind of driver - I didn't do anything and it advanced to
Blank Hard Drive
Drive not set up for use, would you like to prepare drive for use in your system?

Is this the zeros part?

Doesn't look like zeros - I would have expected that to take a long time.

Seems to be a partition window. Shows empty circle with color blocks for NTFS, FAT 16 and 32.
Outside of Help, Back and Cancel my only button to choose is Add - to insert another partition.
After partition are added I will have Clear, Delete and Modify.

Click "Add" until you have your four partitions...at some point we'll get a slider that we can use to adjust the partition size. Here is where we have to be careful...adjusting the partition size can change the default file type...we need to make sure we stay with FAT32. Lots of input please..... :tazz:

Add takes me to Create Partition page.

Select Partition Size shows 120038

Next is slider to adjust partition size.

There is a selection of Partition Type to choose Default, FAT 16 or 32

Then a selection of Cluster size - that I can't see options at this time.

A bar at left will show free, current partitio size and Allocated.


Before I do anything correct me -
Partition size - I'll choose 30GB or 25%
FAT32
Cluster - - from Default or 512Bytes to 32 KB??

All Correct...Be careful here...this is where the last attempt went awry...watch the file type, if it switches away from FAT32...switch it back before continueing.
