I just installed Windows XP SP2 on my new diamondmax maxtor 200GB 7200 RPM and in the installation, it said it only recognized 30gb of free space to be partitioned, so i did that and installed.
Now im in windows (fully installed) and it still says only 30GB hard drive! How can I get this to use the full 200GB hard drive? I tried downloading the Maxtor Big Drive enabler and it said it installed correctly, I also tried using the MaxBlast 4 software but it didn't help at all (because when I went to partition, even it only recognized the 30gb hd)
Also, ive heard that older mobos can limit like 32GB hds, so I'll also post my mobo name:
its an "Intel Fayetteville D815EFVU"
does this mean, i can just use this update here:
and it will remove the old hard drive limitations?...
