Hyper 2012 R2 – Adding a new hdd – Formating the hdd in Windows takes eternity

Hi folks!

I’ve just added a 40 GB second hdd to a test system via Hyper-V. Now i wanted to format the disk (giving also a new letter) in diskmgmt.msc . Curiously it lasted 3 hours to format this small disk. I’m quite new to hyper-v but still…VMware vSphere takes
3 seconds to do so in virtual machines. What is different in this case or am i doing something wrong? Please help.
