I have a Western Digital 250Gb drive, using it as a secondary drive in my machine. Asus P4P800 motherboard, using XP pro on my OS.

Problem…. When using the installation tools from WD it says that I can only use 137Gb of the drive. Says that Windows can only see up to 137Gb of drive space and not further.

So my question is, how can I configure or what do I do to set this up so I can see all of my drive and NOT 137Gb?

reformat the disk using QT parted, or fdisk. If its only your second HD. format your /dev/hdb1 to dos. Or better yer in the windows GUI, open up my computer and if its already formatted for DOS, then right click and reformat it there.

qt_parted is a program you can download the iso for and burn to a disk as an image and boot it up. type when you get the # prompt .run_qtparted then It will ask you for your key map, type 41. The english, and thens elect your mouse. If you dont know which one it is select autodetect.

Qt_parted is a unix software, right? Is there something that I am missing? I formatted the drive and nothing. Windows just won’t let me use all of the drive space. I’m at a lost.
