You need to set it up in disk management.

Right mouse click my computer go to manage.

look down the list on the left for disk management.

You can set it as active and format it from there.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
