I'm using qtparted to try to format a brand new HDD. I want to make it a storage drive and I want to make it NTFS so that Windows knows how to read it too.
So I created a logical volume and then went to format the space within it as NTFS. It says "All operations completed" straight away and the space turns red indicating it is allocated as a NTFS partition. Then I go to COMMIT and again it says "All operations completed" straight away. But where the NTFS partition should be it now says unknown under the type column and does not save the label either. The space is also shown as white rather than red.
When I tried to make it ext3 once I hit commit the box popped up and it took a little while to process through to 100% and when it finished it remained as ext3.
Any ideas on what to do because it would be nice to have it as NTFS.
