Has anyone else come had any issues deploying an image to Seagate HDD?

I've deployed the same image, using Kace SDA, to multiple HP models and HDD manufacturers without issue. However, when I've tried to deploy to Seagate drives the pre installation task to format the drive fails. If I put a Western Digital drive in the same hardware the image deploys correctly.

Has anybody else seen this behavior?

  • Are there more differences than just the manufacture? Are they hybrid drives?
  • Just standard 3.5" HDD's of various capacities.
  • Based on your inputs, it looks like a hardware issue, Do you have a third brand available for tie breaker?

    When it fails to format... What's the error?

    Are you sure the KBE and BIOS are able to see that HDD?
    (open CMD, DISKPART, do a LIST DISK), Do this from the KBE > Tools menu
