If you're just concerned with getting all the space just use the software that came with the disk to install a partition on the remainder and format it.

You're really in a catch 22 situation, You can't install sp2 to see the whole drive until after you've installed the OS, which can't see it. So if you want the whole drive you have to use the provided software to do it before you put the OS on and then download SP2.

Guys I want to first thank you for all your help it was greatly appreciated. 2nd I wanted to let you guys know how much of an idiot I was really being because I found a way of solving this problem so quick if only I would have thought for a few minutes. What I did was take the hard drive for my new system and put it into my old system that is currently running SP2 then I just went into disk manager created a full partition and replaced the new drive into my new CPU.
