You need to install Service Pack 1 in order to get beyond that limit. If the drive in question is the one you're installing Windows XP onto, then you'll need an installation disk that has Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or later. If you don't have access to such a disk, you can create your own, see: http://lifehacker.com/386526/slipstream-service-pack-3-... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
