    Just received my X10.
    Now i have been trying to install Seagate Ironwolf 8 TB hard drive, but no luck so far. X10 won't recognize hd.

    Yes, i formatted it with GPT and after that NTFS.
    Now i have done that several times, running diskpart in Command Prompt (Run as Administrator).

    I am running Windows 10.

    Be sure to remove always all partitions first! There may be hidden partitions too.
    @bigow: Nice but far too expensive for me Price/Terabyte.

    Where is the format option hidden in Openwrt? I’ve looked (almost) everywhere.

    There is the dreadful diskpart in windows, open a powershell with admin right and type diskpart. Note: you should find command of diskpart with google. Be very carefull read about this utility since you could wipe out any disk. This utility realy clean any disk to the root... and format very good.
