Recently installed Vista Ultimate x64. Immediately updated with Windows update including SP1. Went to partition a WD 3200AAKS which was to be used for storage and backups. Drive is shown in Bios, Device manager, and Disk manager and drivers installed. Connected by Sata to the board. Started partitoning by shrinking the volume, and then choosing New Simple volume in the unalloacted space. It hangs at this point but a new "Other Device" is shown in device manager. Checked and it is identified as generic Volume, so I attempted to install drivers with no success. Went through all the steps including the Microsoft fix which of course failed for this. Also used browse to point to inf and driverstore. Nothing worked. Initially got the message "The system cant find the file specified" and followed all the driver install procedure from there. Almost sounds like a problem similar to the USB problems. Any suggestions. After all this I have to delete both to get the entire drive back.
