Default Re: Windows not seeing my HDD?

If the LBA mode is off for some reason that will stall at the 137gb barrier due to the bios limitation there. Most boards however simply see the entire drive available to XP. You likely have an XP/SP1 disk there not one seeing SP2 included and need to download SP2 separately.

That never saw any problems when using an older SP1 disk for a 250gb ide model drive here. Is that an ide or sata there?
