Incorrect disk space reported
Posted on 2002-04-27
I have an old pc wich was running fine with a 4 gig hdd in it. I now want to upgarde the hdd to an 8 gig one but when I install the drive, the system reports it as being only 2 gigs big. At first I thought this was a bios problem but this is at the latest version. I have also discovered that the guy who had the pc before me also ran an 8 gig drive with no problems so I am wondering how I can get around this.
The disk has nothing on it at the moment so no need to worry about which os it is etc. the make of mobo is Micro Star (?) and the hdd is a fujitsu.
Any pointers here would be cool as I have tried all I know and am going slightly mad...
Thanks for any help
