WinXP + A7V + Maxtor6Y160L0 (160Gb) = 128Gb

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus (More info?)

Hello

I've installed in my Primary IDE (not Promise) a Maxtor 6Y160L0 Hard Drive
which should have around 160Gbytes.

The bios (1011) recognizes it well reporting 163929 Mbytes but in the disk
manager under XP-Pro it says only 131069Mb.

FDISK under W98SE says around 25000MB (no comment!!)

any solution???

thank you in advance!!

Luis
