I created a iSCSI LUN on a Synology DS1513+.  The LUN size is 6TB. I configured the Microsoft iSCSI initiator on a Windows XP (32 bit) computer and it shows as being connected to the LUN with the iSCSI initiator, but the disk doesn't show up in disk management. I then configured the iSCSI initiator on a Windows 7 (64 bit) computer and I am able to see the LUN in disk management.  Any idea why the LUN is not showing up in disk management on the Win XP machine? I don't know why it wouldn't show up in WinXP disk management because the iSCSI initiator is able to see the target and connect to it.

Windows XP has a 2TB HDD size limit because it doesn't support GPT partitions.

You are correct, sir! Full points to you. I created two smaller LUNs (25 and 50GB) and they showed up in disk management on the WinXP computer.
