I'm trying to install a clean copy of win2k onto a (dynamic) 150GB partition of a 300GB SATA disk (the remaining 150GB used as a "Spanned" partition in conjunction with another SATA 300GB disk...)
When I proceed with win2k setup, it tells me that the two physical (SATA) disks have an "unrecognized or damaged" partition on them (I know they work), and it also displays them as 131GB only (although they're set withing windows to 150 and 450GB).
Initially, the same problem occoured within windows, but there was a registry patch by seagate to chage some disk access option to 48bit. Do I really need "Third party drivers", even though I can see my disks appear in setup? If I do, which ones exactly do I need?
Both HDs are Seagates' SATA ST3300831AS, and the my motherboard is the Chaintech SPT800.
