My new Hewlett Packard laptop came with two drive bays and a 1TB internal hard drive with Windows 8. I took a 320GB hard drive out of a 2010 Hewlett Packard put Windows 8 on it and put it in the primary drive in the new machine. Now, I need to format the 1TB to serve as a data drive. However, Windows will not show two system drives. I don't know how to format the 1TB now. HP does not support my request and Microsoft seems to be unable to help. Microsoft says they could help if I had a bootable media. They also have given me a windows 8 download link that requires a product key. HP will not give me a product key, saying that information is embedded in windows recovery disks. How can I reformat my 1TB?
