Hi modasras,

******** Not for points, sirbounty gave you the right answer ********

Take a look here:
http://www.ntfs.com/ntfs_vs_fat.htm
You will see that the maximum volumesize for NTFS4 (which NT4 SP6a uses) is 2TB
Sirbounty allready explained you the maximum systempartition size.

Greetings,

LucF
