Hello,

Hopefully someone can help me with this.

I had a PIII 1 Ghz computer with an 80 Gig hard drive as master and a 30 Gig as Slave.... I recently purchased a new computer, PIV 3 Ghz and it came with an 80 Gig hard drive and I installed Windows XP Pro on it....It works fine and can see the full 80 Gig's of space. I then installed my older 80 Gig as the slave in my new system but it only see's it as a 32 Gig drive.

When the computer is booting up, you can see the POST detecting the Master as 80Gig and the Slave as 32Gig.....

Why would it recognize one 80 but not the other??

Thanks

Dean

Yes, I deleted the existing partition and then created a new one and formatted it..... But It doesn't seem to be picking up in the boot process that it's an 80 Gig.... So, when I deleted the partition and created the new one, it only created a 32Gig Partition..... And that's what Windows XP see's.

If my bios picked it up as an 80, I think all would be ok.. But I'm not sure why this drive is not detecting as an 80 like my master is.... Weird
