I have the Western Digital 200GB WD2000JBRTL UATA100 with an Ultra ATA Controller Card...hd plugged into controller card like it should be....
yet it still detects only the 137 GB's...i really don't know what's wrong. Help anybody?

Some other specs of my comp:
Windows XP service pack 1
Gigabyte GA-8IK110
Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG (is my bios not 48-bit or something?)

More about : 137 128 binary limit

Isn't that the new 875P board? Perhaps you need to go into BIOS/Main and select the drive postition, then enable 48-bit addressing manually?

Did you try to resize the partition after you installed SP1?
