XP Pro SP2 Reports HDD size incorrectly
Posted on 2011-10-01
I apologize if this has been asked, I did do a search but did not find a solution that matches my problem exactly.
I am installing XP Pro SP2 on a Dell Dimension 8200 (old). I confirmed it had the latest BIOS and that the BIOS supports large HDD's.
No matter what size HDD I install (200-500g) the install reports the size as 20 gig.
The BIOS appears to report the HDD size accurately.
I am formatting in NTFS
I have added a registry line to EnableBigLba
I have never encountered this before, any help would be greatly appreciated
