I have a rather new (only 5 Days old) computer.
It has already Windows 8.1 installed to its C: Driver by default (and I have NO PROBLEMS with that, I DONT want to reinstall windows onto a new disk or anything like that).
I have just bought a new SSD (Samsung EVO Basic 840 1TB)
And I want to ADD this disk to my system WITHOUT changing anything else.
The disk has been physically installed on my computer and connected properly by the technicians at the store from which I had bought my computer.
They ALSO made sure that the new SSD is recognized by BOTH Bios AND the device manager in windows 8.1
BUT they told me that they did not create a NEW VOLUME (?) for it,
which basically means that even though it is physically installed, and both bios and windows recognizes the disk, IT IS NOT USEABLE as of yet.
They told me I have to Active it (create a new volume??) in diskmanager or something like that.
So I googled it, and ran: diskmgmt.msc
Upon doing that, I immediately got a question like: (Checked) Disk 1
MBR or GPT?
I googled it a little bit more, and chose MBR over GPT (legacy, fewer possible compatibility issues etc)
** BUT NOW, I dont know what to do after that **
And this is what I need help with.
Here is a little info about the disks on my computer:
I have a C: drive (windows installed on it)
and a drive (Good'ol fashioned harddisk 2TB)
E: (dvd rw)
F: (SSD 250gig)
G: (SSD2 250gig)
ALL of the above are seperate physical disks
NOW, I want to ADD A FINAL DISK, MY NEW Samsung EVO Basic 840 1TB.
And Im guessing that it should be the H or I drive or something like that....?
What should I do to enable it for use (as yet Another extra disk) in windows?
Thank you for Reading, for your time, and any possible answers
