I just installed a Segate 300GB SATA to GA-K8N-SLI board. But the BIOS detects only 137GB for this disk. Looks like it hits the 28-bit address limit. BIOS is updated to version F5. But that doesn't help. I guess such an old limitation should not happen. Any suggestion?
Hey, are you sure that it's your BIOS that is setting a limitation? First: make sure you have latest BIOS. Second: SATA drives very rarely have limitations, especially an Nforce 4 chipset board. Keep in mind that any Windows XP below SP2 does not recognize anything above what you had written. If you have SP2 installed, and have since you installed windows, i recommend having the drive tested.
