Ok so this may or may not work, just a fix that worked for me!

Open up terminal (I was using Parted Magic) and type:

ps -ef | egrep "dosfsck|ntfs"

copy the line:

ntfsresize --info --force --no-progress-bar /dev/sd##

and run it in the CLI.

This stopped Gparted from searching partitions and showed my new disk drive. I then deleted everything and created new Partition table and formatted NTFS.
