Having heard so many wonderful things about osx and Macs I was expecting something special after spending the best part of £2k on my Mac Pro.
However I've run into some problems straight away;
firstly no matter what I do the Mac refuses to format my seagate drive to any of the mac formats (extended, journaled, etc.). The only format it will accept is Windows FAT32 (I'm raising my eyebrow in a cynical fashion at this point).
Secondly, it refuses to see that there's more than 4gb of RAM inside, this includes the extra 2gb that the shop installed for me and the 2gb that I installed myself.
Finally it refuses to recognise that I've installed a PCI (esata) card, I've tried two, including a Lacie that the shop said they'd installed thousands of times.
Clearly I've sent it back, but was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice on the matter.
I was going to ask how steve jobs sleeps at night, then I realised I knew the answer; on a big pile of money, surrounded by beautiful women.

Thats because your drive has a FAT32 partition map.
Did you overwrite that by creating a new '1 partition' map in the Partition tab?

Are you sure you put it in the correct slots - the Mac Pro has a very specific slot-configuration layout.

A Mac Pro uses PCI-e cards, not the older PCI cards.
