Windows 7: Disk Sig Collision w/clone; wish 2 chnge ID with DiskPart, format?

Disk Sig Collision w/clone; wish 2 chnge ID with DiskPart, format?

This (data) disk clone can now become a mirror. I can pop this 3Tb drive into my own computer and change its ID, but I don't know the format requirements.

Unique ID is now 8C4C014E-22F0-4A00-B97F-74FFE1557E55

What characters can be changed while keeping proper format to allow this HDD to have a new ID, and thus show up in Disk Management when put back into its former place in friend's computer as drive E?

TIA,
Bruce

Secret; You can use a signature ID generator, then you MUST type "online" without the quotes, before you exit DiskPart. This was set to "offline" by Disk Manager when the collision occurred.

Without it going back online, I kept getting more drive letters used up trying, (I went through 6 drive letters this way, now I have to get them out of the MBR on HDD2 somehow. They keep turning up in the registry in Local Machine).
