For various reasons I would like to downgrade to SP2 from SP3. I made complete new fresh install, however the BigDrive Enabler from Maxtor ( http://maxtor.com/po...s&downloadID=11 ) did not support SP2.
If the link did not work, then go to the software downloads, ATA drivers and drive utility - and the last one is the BigDrive Enabler.
Therefore I can't access (write) to area above 137G on my big NTFS partion that eat the rest after 2G FAT32 system partion.
Now I know, that the BigDrive Enabler is just a registry chnge thing: " This utility takes the guess work out of editing the Windows registry. The Big Drive Enabler fixes an operating system limitation. This utility is needed anytime a Hard Disk Drive larger than 137 GB is connected to the motherboard's ATA bus, regardless of any system BIOS that supports 48-bit LBA."
If this is just about registry editing, then it might work (depends of the ATA M$ driver, tough) on SP2, right?
And if it did not work, then a update from the SP3 install - the driver - should be possible to add to Win2k SP2, right?
Please advice and solution for the da.mn problem... thanks!
PS. okay, I should mention that I have use the nForce2 Ultra 400 chipset and the Microsoft drivers (no way to use the nVidia ones!) for IDE devices...
