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 become 2gb. I used a win98 startup disk and fdisked the drive and formated it. Fine 29.???gb. Rebooted and still only 2gb.

Redid fdisk and format to check enabled Large disk support. allfine but still only 2gb. Reformatted C drive. clean install of ME, Fine. Reformatted, clean install of 2000, Fine. Reformatted, clean install of XP, 2gb. Reformatted and clean ME install, fine, upgraded to 2000, fine, upograded tp XP, 2GB again. Dont know what to do now. An help would be appreciated.
