Help the ZEN!! WindowsXP hates ME!! HD No Worky!!
Ok, I need some help pls... I got my new PC up and running last night, and I started to install WindowsXP Pro onto the system. When it came to the area to choose the partition to install on, it only saw one (this is normal, since the drive is brand new) However, it said the partition was 127,647,954 KBs....... It is supposed to be a 300GB HD, and the BIOS sees it as 300GBs, but when WindowsXP Pro sees it, it only sees it as 129GB..... I did not but a 300GB drive to have it be less then half that size. I went ahead and installed Windows, and it worked (kinda... But that is another issue...). So, any ideas on how to make Windows recognize the drive as about 290GB, since Windows sees 1024MB as 1GB, and the HD manufacturers see it as 1000MB to every 1GB. That means the drive should be about 292.9GB in total.... NOT 129GB!!! WTF is causing this, and how do I fix it!!!??? PLS HELP!!!
