250G Maxtor SATA II Installation problem cured

Posts: n/a
      1st May 2006
From previous post, I couldn't get my XP installation boot CD to recognise
more than 137GB of a brand new 250G Maxtor SATA drive when attempting to
build a new system on it.

This problem was cured by burning an XP SP2 slipstream boot CD.

My original XP boot CD WOULD recognise and partition correctly a Maxtor 160G
PATA drive.

I did NOT need to install RAID drivers for this to work. (I have no
intention of using RAID on this system)

Many thanks for all help and asistance on the way!

Best Regards
