Bios & Windows reporting wrong disk size after ghosting
Posted on 2008-10-24
I've recently bought a 250Gb hd to replace the old 80Gb that I have on my Dell Inspiron 6400. After ghosting the disk from the 80Gb to the 250Gb, weird thing is happening. The 250Gb is being detected by the BIOS and windows as an 80Gb. Under disk management as well, I can't go beyond this size.
Could someone please tell me what I did wrong and point me to some method of reverting this back. My guess is there's something wrong with the geometry of the drive. But can ghosting a disk overwrite such data???
Thanks for the help
