How to get Win NT to recognize the full capacity of a 200gb HD

I am trying to install a 200gb hard drive into an older Pentium 3 machine, and will be installing Win NT server.  Right now the computer is only recognizing 130 of the drives 200gb capacity.  Should I update the bios on the motherboard since I am pretty sure it has an older one on it, or is there another way?  I have had this problem using Win XP but was able to fix the problem with a Service Pack upgrade.  Any suggestions?
