Format a Samsung 2TB HD - ST2000LMI003 HN-M201RAD for optical bay use
I am trying to format the 2TB ST2000LM003 HN-M201RAD for use in the optical bay of my MBP 17" Early.
I have formatted it several times and used restore from a Thunderbolt external dock and it works fine.
As soon as I place it in the optical bay via the OWC Data Doubler, MBP wants to initialize the disk. It show as a master boot and not GUID. I have tried to Partition it with the Disk Utility Mac OS Extended (Journaled) option GUID. It just hangs with the words "Waiting for disk to reappear".
Is this a problem the OWC Data Doubler? Or will a 2TB drive not work in the optical bay?
Is this a good question?
