Well, did you get an ide card to hook the drive up to? You need to either use that or update your bios to support ATA-6/48-bit lba.


That's how you'll see your entire drive.

rcreplay,


Just like rugby said, you need an IDE controller that will support 48-bit LBA. Here are the steps:


Step 1. You need a 48-bit LBA controller. This controller needs to reside either on a card which you buy or on a motherboard. Basically in this step you need to find out what you have or don't have and if necessary, buy.


Step 2. After you get the controller (card are motherboard), chances are the BIOS is OK so you don't have to worry. If it is on the motherboard, the BIOS should have support for >137GB drive, if it is on the card, the card's BiOS take over and it should support >137GB. Basically you don't need to do anything in this step, just install the card and drive.


Step 3. You need either Windows XP Service Pack 1 OR Intel Application Accelerator. Both of them is free, downloadable. Windows XP SP1 is not free if your original Windows XP was not free (wink, wink...)


Good luck...

win2ksp3/XPsp1 should be able to "see" the full drive as long as you install

the OS in partition under 128GiB/137GB limit and you enable 48-bit

LBA support in the OS prior to creating second larger partition beyond

128GiB/137GB limit.


win2ksp3/XPsp1 should only be using BIOS (thus needing 48-bit LBA

support) for the OS bootloader. After that win2ksp3 should take direct

control of IDE interface, bypassing BIOS.


In the case of replay upgrade drive, you'll most likely only have the drive

in temporarily to run rtvpatch, so all that should be necessary is to enable

48-bit LBA support in OS.


To enable 48-bit LBA OS support in win2ksp3/XPsp1:
