Run DiskPart from an elevated command prompt.

Use following commands:
List Disk will list your disks
SELECT DISK 0 assuming that 0 is your desired disk
DETAIL DISK this will help you to confirm that you selected the correct disk
LIST PARTITION will list partitions on the selected disk
SELECT PARTITION n you specify the "raw" partition here
DETAIL PARTITION will help you confirm that you selected correctly
FORMAT PARTITIONN FS=NTFS will format the selected partition
EXIT will exit from DiskPart
EXIT will exit from the command shell

Now you can go back into DiskManagement and give your partition a name.
=====================================================

Go To an Elevated Command Prompt


Elevated command prompt = Run CMD.EXE as administrator

WIN | type CMD.EXE | do not hit Enter |
in the PROGRAMS list, right-click on CMD.EXE |
choose "Run as administrator" |

Click on the YES button (if such appears)

WIN key = key with Microsoft log on top

for the guru:
WIN | type CMD.EXE | CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER key combo | ALT+Y keycombo

Hi,

Yes, you can do that, but you need to format it first. Use EaseUS to format that partition if you don't need to recover any data from it.

that's because the command was incorrect. Do you not read? See post #13.

Do you just want to fail or what?
