Ok well my IBM drive just bit the dust the otherday so today I picked up a new WD2500 (250GB and 8MB Buffer). I am using it as just a single drive and no seconday drive. Well my windows cd is the 1st one meaning it doesnt have the service pack 1 on it. So to use the drive I had to format to 137GB to install windows xp becuase only SP1 allows bigger drives. Then I do a NTFS format (not the quick one) and then install windows xp pro. Then I got SP1 installed and now I am stuck. I ran the Data Lifeguard program on the cd and it said it will do a registry change to enable big HDs and them it reboots. So how can I use the drive @ 250GB? Sorry if this post doesnt seem to make perfect sense but I am pretty tired, lol. Thanks.
