FDISK only shows 504MB on a 1.6GB Drive
Posted on 1998-10-26
I have a WD 1.6GB HDD installed on my Tyan Tomcat (HX) motherboard. It's the master on the primary IDE channel. When I use FDISK to create a primary partition, it asks if I want to use the all of the available space on the disk - I say yes, and it tells me that the total space is only 504MB.
BIOS recognizes the HDD as a 1.6GB, so I'm kinda confused. Previously, I used only SCSI drives on this motherboard, so I never saw this problem.
I'm using Win95 OSR2, version 4.00.1111. I'm attempting to get a 1.6GB FAT32 partition, but I'm stuck.
I KNOW I'm missing something small, but I'm stuck, nonetheless.
