THE 256GB DISK IS THERE


as is the 999gb disk.



why are you keying in anything at all. are you trying to do this via console / terminal commands


or with disk utility . quite frankly the terminal method can fail with just 1 miss stroke of the key board

I had an issue doing it when booted from one of the drives. I ended up creating a bootable flash drive with disk utility on it and it went smooth as butter.
