I recently got a new system. New CPU, motherboard, RAM. I kept my old storage devices. My hard disk is a 250gig Seagate. But i have reformatted everything and re installed WINxp and IT only says its 137 gig. So my first impression was i needed to install the RAID controller driver. So i downloaded the Driver pre install files and put them on a floppy. I then proceeded to run windows setup with my Windows CD. I pressed F6 and it picked up and detected the new RAID controller drivers. I load XP and go to devive manager and under RAID controller it says its working fine etc. But when i go to Local disk from My Computer it still only says its 137 gig. IF i go to System Information, and look at the info from my hard disk drive it says 250gig.
I run my computer shop who installed the hardware. And they asked if i definently had service pack 2 installed. Which i do. I noticed in device manager that the system did not reconise the RAID controller. So i downloaded the files for the Raid Controller and put them on to a floppy. I ran windows Setup and pressed F6 as you do and installed the Raid Drivers. I did not proceed to install windows again though. I just exited. Then in devive manager it said that the RAID controller drivers were working fine. But as i see the total size of my Disk in My Computer it still says 130 gig. I even have gone to disk manager and it only has 1 partition there which is the 130gig one.
Does anyone know what to do here
