Hi, I have just installed a Western digital 250GB SATAII Hard drive, when installing Windows XP Pro at the start it says I only have 131GB not 250. My Mother board is a GIGAbyte GA-M57SLI-S4 which is 6 months old and the processor is an AMD Athlon 64 x 2 Dual Core 4200. Memory is 2GB.Can any body help on this as I need the disc space.
In Windows, click on Start->Run, enter "regedit". # Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Parameters registry subkey. # From the Edit menu, select New, DWORD Value. # Enter the name EnableBigLba, then press Enter. # Double-click the new value, set it to 1, then click OK. # Close the registry editor. # Restart the machine for the change to take effect.
