I've given up on disk management. Use diskpart


I've had to use diskpart on 3 drives recently with 100% success.

Didn't work. :(


Time to get medieval on its ash!


If GParted can't get it going, nothing will. If you can't get it working using the instructions in that link, its safe to assume the drive is damaged.
