Problem fitting New 200gb hard drive

  Cameraman 10:47 01 Dec 2005

I have been trying to fit a 200gb Seagate hard disk to my Nephew's computer although the computer recognises the 200gb in the bios set up when I go to install windows XP it only shows 131062mb of space to be formated. I also tested the same with this hard disk on my own P4 2.53 computer and had the same result.can someone tell me how to get the full 200gb from this hard disk----Please

You have to have SP2 installed for Xp to see anything over 137GB.
