Identical disks - different sizes reported

Guest

Hi all,

I have a DELL GX280 with two identical Maxtor SATA 250GB (Model 7Y250oMo)
hard drives.
1. Phoenix BIOS reports both disks correclty as 250GB
2. In Windows 2000, Disk0 reports correctly as 250GB ... but Disk1 reoprts
incorrectly as 128GB.
3. Have run Killdisk, PM8, and Delpart to blow the partition away and
recreate it in Windoiws Disk Manager but have the same problem each time.
Anyone have a clue to this?

Yes that was that problem but I found a somewhat different way of solving it.
Maxtor has an ATA Utility called "Maxtor Big Drive Ebnabler" (No kidding!!!)
and I ran that. Guess it will essentially does the same thing as KB305098.

Thanks.
