I was running ME with a 120gb primary disk, a 30gb secondary disk, both on master ide bus and a 40gb disk on firewire and a cdrw on the secondary bus all was fine. I upgraded to 2000pro. all was fine. I have now upgraded to xp pro and my 30gb disk has suddenly become 2gb. I used a win98 startup disk and fdisked the drive and formated it. Fine could see 29.???gb. Rebooted and still only 2gb in XP. Started fdisk from floppy and format to check I had enabled Large disk support. All fine but still only 2gb in XP. Reformatted C drive. clean install of ME, all Fine. Reformatted, clean install of 2000, all Fine. Reformatted, clean install of XP, and back to 2gb again. Reformatted C and clean ME install, all fine, upgraded to 2000, all fine, upograded to XP, and back to only 2GB again. Dont know what to do now. Any help would be appreciated.
Yes have tried that but it only lets me format the 2gb in FAT or NTFS. If I uninstall from DM and reformat the 2gb I can see then go to DOS FDisk. I can only see the first partion of 2gb (2011Mb). I then deleted the partition & set the drive up again in DOS back to XP & 2gb again.
