2gb size not 20gb,system is converted to FAT32

Genesis750, is the drive showing the correct size in BIOS, is your version of BIOS able to detect a 20G HDD?

I think that you need to go into dos and fdisk - and reset the partition size. This will delete everything.

try Partition magic if you can get it - currently in PC world for £30 which is excellent value. It is non destructive for partitioning.

Yes the 20gb is recognized in the bios.
would I need to do a re-format?
