130GB? WTF mate?

I know this has been posted on the forums gazillion times before, but I forgot...I have a system with a 160 SATA HD and and IDE 200GB HD, what do I have to do to get Windows 2000/XP to recognize my HD capacity more closely? It's seeing both HD's as 130GB right now.

More about 130gb mate
  1. First of all your BIOS has to support drives over ~127GB, then you need SP1 or SP2 for your Windows installation.

  4. SP1 supported my 160GB drive as a single partition, I'm right!

  6. My SP1 see's my 2x74GB Raptors in RAID 0 as 148 GB. SP1 supports over 127 GB, but the board must support 48-bit addressing (which his board does).
