Can not format 2TB drive in Vista. The problem has been previously described and the suggested resolution to update disk controller driver solved the issue.

The drive is a 2TB Barracuda Green and the system is an HP M8100n with an nVidia SATA controller.

I had to perform the controller update from Seagate twice but it worked corrected the second time.

Thanks to poster in a previous problem chain that has been closed.

You may think about partioning the drive into smaller logical drives and try formatting, if this does not cause you a problem.

Conversely, you may think of updating the BIOS of your motherboard, if you have not done so yet.
