Windows does not see the full capacity of the hard drive

I bought a western digital hard drive with a 200gb capacity and windows does not see the full capacity of this hard drive at the fresh windows installation, the os only detects 130gb. After I installed windows in administrative tools in a disk management option it still shows me 130gb capacity.

These are my specs
hd: wd2000jb
motheboard: MB ASUS P4P800-E DELUXE 865PE RET
cpu: CPU P4/3.0EGHz 800M 478P/1MB HT RT

Do I have to enable anything on a bios level for a large hard drive support or perhaps install different drives for my intel chip set?
Any ideas?

I have an 865 board as well and it sees these drives fine.  In all likelihood, you just have to enable a registry setting for LBA.

Probably - but I can't be certain - never looked into that.  (Actually, maybe not - I did an install of SP3 embedded and I had the same problem when I put my 160GB drive in)
