    windows xp non service pack 2?
  2. download and install sp2, go into disk management (right click on "my computer" and select manage), partition and format the rest of the disk.
  3. How old is your system? Because some of the older motherboards can't see/use the full size of the new larger hard drives. If that is the case a bois update might do the trick
  4. thank you for your reply ... i got it now ... need to update bios & install service pack 2. thank you for your information. ..

    thanks you very much..
