Chosen Solution

Because your machine can not transfer data at SATA II speeds. You need to slow the drive down to SATA I speed, or, find a different drive.

Also it's not clear if you are trying to partition the boot disk... You can't do that. You have to boot from another source then use DU to partition the drive.
