can partition magic see the rest of the disk space?

EDIT:
you did restart after installing SP2 didnt you? if not then do so and try to do it again, it should work.

Assuming you didn't do the "quick format" that is normal. Even on 80GB drives, it takes forever. Quick format is good enough for me.

not when the HDD has never been written on before. when you dont do quick then it will erase everything manually, quick just tells the HDD that you can write over existing data.
