Xp Home Not Reporting Correctly

Recommended Posts

Building a new computer for girlfriends parents and XP Home is reporting the 320GB HDD, as a 127gb. Is there some sort of update, or settings I need to change to get it to report properly?

It could also be the file system on the hardrive what does it have fat, fat32, ntfs?

 

But upgrade it to SP2 if it doesn't have it might fix it.

i believe fat32 has a max of 36gbs (correct me for the exact number) so it can't be that

You may have to go into the BIOS and enable LBA as well. Check the motherboard manual for more information on how to enable it.
