200 gig hard drive win2k server

By aknell ·
I have just Loaded win2k server, I have a 200 gig hard drive this and its not detecting at the full 200 gig, only 120 gig in disk manager.

I've updated the BOIS, removed and installed the drive in device manager, updated windows, I want to use this as a SAN on the network but getting frustrated with getting the full 200 to detect.

Oh and it does detect as 200 gig in the bois, mainboard is a asus P4S800 MX SE, celeron 2.6 ghz, 512 mg ram.

Any help much appreciated!!

Interesting read but didnt help, i have the drive partitioned as a 8 gig system partition and disk manager only detects the remaining hard drive as 120 gig, to partition when it should be 190 gig-ish. But thanks!!

You must be on Win2k service pack 4 to see the full drive. Also, it should be formatted NTFS.

Win 2K is fully up to date, jumper settings on hard drive are all ok too.

I had exactly this problem adn the article below is the fix. Please note that a reboot is required after changing the registry value and you may need to reformat the disk.
