Default Hard Drive

I have just repartioned my 160GB HD and it's only readying the 128GB. I have the latest BIOS installed on my MB, and I'm running XP Pro SP2. Is there any software I need to get it to read the full 160. It's a Maxtor 6 Y160. Thanks

check just to make shur this is enabled.... http://www.48bitlba.com/enablebiglba.htm

then u may wont to go to /controlpannel/admin tools/comp manager/disk manager... and make shur the HD is only read at 128, not partitioned to 128. if its only partitioned at 128, then u can just stretch the 128gb partition over the rest of the volume to reach your full 148gbs.
