250G Maxtor SATA II Installation problem cured

    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

    Steve
