Well first of all some power outages fried the PSU.
So put in a new supply and that works.
Anyways now when I go to create a new partition with FAT 32 or FAT 16 it only shows the max available space as 2gigs.
It's set to auto detect and entering in the cylinders and heads manualy doesnt work.
The max number you can select is far too low.
I can't find any place to change the LBA setting either in the BIOS.
If I put a different HD in of the exact same type, same jumper settings on the back too, then it works it shows 10gigs.
Also after partitioning, I go to install Windows 2000 and format it from there.
It shows 2 partitions 1 of 2gigs and 1 of 1mb.
What gives? Is the hard drive fried too?
Was 80% of the hard drive sectors somehow marked as bad?
Oh and it's an IBM Deskstar (aka Deathstar)
I have installed the OS once and it works fine but only 2GBs.
