Hi Experts,

  I just bought a new 500GB HDD and i'm trying to install server 2003. While booting off the cd and going through the setup Windows gives me a message that no hard drives are found. I then put in a window XP cd and XP doesn't have any problems seeing the drive. Does the hard drive needs to be formatted first so windows 2003 can see it?
