I recently done an upgrade/new build and installed windows ultimate in a 50gb partition on a new 250gb hdd. I cant work out how to format the other 200gb partition.

Vista Ultimate x64
E4600 2.4ghz
ga-ep45-ds3l
250gb seagate sata hdd
3gb generic ram


I've searched old posts and they all seem to relate to reformatting but this a new clean drive with 200gb unformatted, unseeable by os and therefore unuseable.
All help is appreciated.

Start button -> type diskmgmt.msc, hit enter.

You should see the unallocated space, which you can choose to format
