Hi, I am right now trying to put together a system with that Motherboard.

I also have a Sata Hard Drive 250GB, but it is only recognizing as 127GB.

I am trying to put the Sata Drivers on a Floppy to install them during the windows Install thing, but when I move the drivers to the Floppy it gives me an error that it can't copy GSATA32/jgogo.sys.
and the copy stops.

Can comeone please tell me how to fix this problem?

thanks much.

If you put your windows install on a smaller partition say 10 GB. Then leave the rest of the drive unformatted, when you get into windows(after installing it on the small partition) you can install the sata drivers and it should properly recognize the last 240GB you have left.

the first time I did that cause I didnt realize it had only recognied half the capacity, and I thought what u said, maybe once I install the sata drivers in windows it will recognize the whole thing.
But nada, once I installed the drivers, it still only recognized 127gb.

Which version of Windows do you have installed? You will need SP1 at a minimum.

See this google: 127 gb limit in windows
Some helpful forum discussions on that subject there - there is a registry fix.
