    To anybody reading this thread looking for an answer. Here's How I did it..
    Connect dvr drive to sata 0.
    boot with gparted .19.1-4
    delete all current partitions. create new ntfs partition.
    open terminal and type these commands. "sudo su" press enter then "hdparm -s0 /dev/sda"
    it tells you PUIS is now off.
    shut down.

    Maybe this will save somebody time over the previous instructions of searching for "hdparm -s0" and reading thru a 39 page thread.

    no need to manipulate with MBR/GPT/File OS, etc
    just run hdparm, it HDD's FW physical parameter [PUIS]

    You must enjoy all the nasty comments your posts get. If it's so "easy" why can't you put links in your posts?

    why you named these as nasty it's beyond of my imagination, probably just to pinch me

    people should learn "how to catch a fish", you are pushing to spoon-feeding them, they are adults after all

    You're kidding...somebody calls you an a**hole and you don't think that's nasty? I've taught adult courses at a college, it's not as simple as you think to get your message across.

    we should spin down the offtopic - discussion personal things it's against site's rules

    We should let the moderators moderate, it is not our job.
