1tb hdd showing only 128gb but the full 1TB in BIOS

My 1TB HDD has been formatted in my Windows 2000 Server and it now shows only 128GB in Computer Management but shows the full 1TB in BIOS and i have searched and can't quite get a clear answer as to why it will not show the full data amount.

  1. Delete all the partitions and re-initalize. If that doesn't work you may have a defective drive.
  2. check to see if the drive has a size limit jumper on it. some older sata and ide drives use to have a jumper to limit the size so people could use newer drive in older pc.
  3. It appears that your OS version may be affected by a 28-bit LBA limit.

    48-Bit LBA Support for ATAPI Disk Drives in Windows 2000:

    "Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and earlier versions of Windows 2000 do not support 48-bit Logical Block Addressing (LBA) as defined in the ATA/ATAPI 6.0 specification."

    "To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000."
