NOTE: /dev/sda is an example drive and may not be the drive you wish to do this to.

If you don't care to save anything on the drive before adding stuff.

# dcfldd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M

Then verify that it took. Redundant and optional, but if it didn't take it'll save you some time in the long term.

# cmp /dev/zero /dev/sda

It should end with some error about end of disk for /dev/sda, it if ends with something else, like doesn't match and an offset, the disk may have outlived it's usable life.

If success, and using the "use whole disk" option from your installer of choice, mostly ignore the rest.

-----

# gparted /dev/sda

To create partitions, if favoring GPT. Otherwise I tend towards cfdisk for <= 2TB disks and MBR / Dos style partitioning.

# mkfs.ext4 -L linuxdistro -U 20170212-0300-1111-1111-111111111111 /dev/sda1

Once created, I tend towards mount, then debootstrap (or arch-chroot) to install linux to said partition. With linuxdistro being an example label. I tends towards something like a distro + arch + disk/partition hinting name, like deb64d1p1. And change the /etc/hostname to match, but personal biases.

RITESHH, I think that you need to take this a step at a time or no-one will be able to understand your problem and help you.

Can we start at the beginning:

What computer do you have and which operating system is currently installed on it?

Do you see an option (below those 5 partitions) to:
Create/Modify partitions? IF so, select it. (See 1st attached screenshot here.)
On next screen, use cfdisk to **delete** *each* partition. (to ERASE ALL disks!)
Then New ... Then Write. Then Quit.

Spend at least a fraction of a hour on web-researching cfdisk. Look for 'images' (on the web)

Android seems to only need a couple GB disk (so an unused partition might work)
You will probably want to *change the default* choice of No grub! to Yes!

Best wishes. Let us know. (I think OP is using this distro)

HELLO,
WHAT IS function of 5V and 12V in hardisk..
The 5v is used to power the the disk logic board (That's the board attached to the disk.The disk controller is usually integrated on the system motherboard though it can be an added adapter.) The 12v is used to power the disk motor and head actuator.

Does that help in any way?

Play Bonny!

Hi Riteshh - with respect, I think you need to elaborate a little more. It's difficult to figure out what your situation is, beyond your desire to install Android on some system. And I'm not 100% sure this forum is the place for questions on Android - I know it's *nix* - based, but I haven't noticed a lot of topics on it. Maybe other members can confirm.

This is something built into the device itself, I mean it is part of the HDD. You do not need to do anything with it, it will just do the work for you.

Would be nice to tell us a bit more about what's going on. Otherwise we can hardly give you any hint....

based on the picture you sent you need to select a filesystem type - but I do not know what for? In general use ext4.

this is about ext4: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext4
this is about win32 disk imager: https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/, in short:
This utility is used to write img files to SD and USB memory devices. Simply run the utility, point it at your img, and then select the removable device to write to.
