Did you format the drive properly first?

What else is on the drive? Is the drive formatted with GUID partition tables?

What mainboard are you using?

Let me make sure I have this right. By drive, I mean a physical unit. By partition, I mean a formatted portion of a physical unit.
So do you have 4 drives, or 1 drive with 4 partitions? In Windows they might show as C, D, E, F

And did you right click and format the "drive" in Windows?
