My computer crashed and I had to reload windows from a restore CD (2001 Windows Home XP). I downloaded the SP2 and all updates. I had added a Maxtor 250 CB harddrive last year. Now it only recognizes 127gb.
I downloaded the Maxtor Bigdrive enabler. I also updated the Intel Application Accelerator. My drive still shows 127 limit, FAT 32, currently 116gb available. I also installed the Maxtor 4 software. But it wont let me access the HD under the setup feature since it already is in use.
I can go to the partition section which allows me to partition unallocated space. Is this the space that XP does not recognize or is this the space that is currently empty that is recognized?
It will allow me to create Partion 2 ntfs 113gb. Should I creat a new partition? Can I have half my HD FAT 32 and half NTFS?
