After pluging it into an IDE port (which is the only type of port i have on my motherboard) i went to install windows on it, but it could only find 130gb of unpartitioned space instead of 475gb which i found weird, but i still went ahead with the installation after it had formatted a 130gb partition thinking that i could just go My Computer > Manage > Disk Management > Then select and format the left over unallocated space but when i got to that, there was only the formatted 130gb! Absolutely no unallocated space! I then restarted my comp and went into windows repair where i used the CHKDSK command in the windows repair console (which i think is the same as MS-DOS) which actually found 130gb of partitioned space and 345gb unallocated space - which windows could not seem to detect for some reason.
Anyone got any clue as to wth is going on here??
