Subject: Integrated SP4 install does enable LBA over 137gig right?

I just have a wierd situation with my CD disk.......

I have an integrated disk with SP4 and all the latest SP's & patches &
so forth. When I do a clean install I still have to enable LBA in the
registery for it to see the rest of a drive bigger than 120?

Example: A 200gig drive with various partition sizes....I just now did a
clean install of 2K & my 200gig, with 3 partitions, shows as a "Local
Disk" and is not accessable....Hit the registry, insert enable LBA and
all appears.

Is SP4 LBA limited while doing the install to see only the 137?? Windows
setup tells me my extra drives are unformatted or damaged when I do an
install if one of the PT's is larger than 137......These are my data
drives anyway so it's no big deal as I only install OS's to 40-80gig
drives only (my own personal use/choice of course).

Would sure love to find an easier way to integrate IE6 though......Does
slipstreamer do that? It appears nLite doesn't or I'm missing something?

Thanks.........

Yes...although the solution would be for someone to write a
script that updates the Registry for the big LBA at the time
of the install. Minor irritation although one has to remember
to do it.
