Windows 7: Win7 support for Seagate disk

Win7 support for Seagate disk

In Win7 RTM I have had trouble with one of my two HDs, a Seagate 300 GB. During Win7 installation, installer "could not find drivers" when the Seagate was the first SATA drive. Once the Western Digital drive was set as the first drive, system installed ok. After installation, the Seagate shows in the Disk Management as 300 GB, but if look at contents with Explorer, it has only 125 GB capacity. Can this be a Seagate firmware problem? (Win7 RC earlier had no problems with this drive when the system had Win7RC + Vista + XP.)
