Windows 2000 Server - 320gb NTFS Hard Disk incorrectly recognized
Posted on 2007-07-20
I have just added a 320gb IDE Hard Disk to a Windows 2000 Server system.
The Windows 2000 Server OS runs from a 160gb IDE Hard Disk.
The newly added 320gb Hard Disk has been formatted as a single NTFS partition (when installed in a Windows XP system).
My problem is that the Windows 2000 Server system only sees that partition as a 120gb partition that is not formatted.
I am sure this is not a hardware problem, as I can boot this hardware using a Windows XP system that runs entirely from a CD-ROM. The 320gb NTFS partition is recognized When that OS is running.
I have tried un-installing and re-installing the 320gb drive, but that doesn't make any difference.
