Just purchased a new SATA II HDD from PC World. When trying to run FDISK the system tells me the HDD is not present - any ideas please?

Have you loaded sata drivers?

FDisk does not work with NFTS formatted drives if you have formtted the SATA drive in NTFS.

Problem resolved - although I had connected the sata power lead into the HDD, I must have forgotten to connect it to a PSU connector !!
