i have a new cpu, with P5E board installed and a new 500G HD.
the problem is, when i try to install windows xp, it says the HD is only 137G...
the bios sees it as 500g as it should.
the only thing i can think of is that the windows is not even sp1.
can it be the problem?
if so, how can i install it and later on (after sp2 patch) add the remining space to the same partition?
if you format the 137 ,you can get the use of the rest of of the 500 by going to management tools in the maintenance section in the control panel and using the disk management section to format the rest of the drive . or just type this into run , compmgmt.msc
