8 Gig hard drive equals 528 MBharddrive in Bios
Posted on 2001-06-20
I have a Segate 8.4 GB harddrive.
When I do IDE auto dectect it picks it up fine and sets it up as a 8.4 GB harddrive but as soon as I reboot it reverts the harddrive back to 528 MB.
This is a pain because FDISK picks it up as 528 MB, Just as well I used Mandrake 7.2 to do my Partitioning. I now have 3 Partitions two of about 4 GB (one FAT32, one ext2) and one 10 MB ext2 partition. I wish to be able to use FDISK to edit my partitions in the furture.
My Setup is as follows Win ME and RedHat 7.1
Lucky-Star motherboard (I can not remember the model name but I can find out if you think that might help, also Lucky-Star still haven't replied to my email about them sending me the manual)
Award BIOS (not sure which version, but think it is the latest for my motherboard)
Primary Master 8.4 GB Seagate Hard Drive (the problem one)
Secondary Master 2.5 GB Quantum Hard Drive (no problems)
Secondary Slave CD Drive
Processor = Celeron 533
Ram = 192 MB
Hope Someone can help
