    Have a 160G HHD. I want to make one partition, but I'm limited to 127G. Is
    it possible to make a partition > then 127G? Tried EASEUS Partition Master,
    Paragon Partition Manager, & Norton PartitionMagic. All limit me to 127G -
    System Volume Information.

    Thanks

    The 127Gb limit is becaause of your BIOS - check the motherboard
    manufacturer's web site to see if there as an update to the BIOS to allow
    for larger hard drives.

    It is usually the BIOS that limits the size of a HD partition.
    It may also matter whether you want FAT32 or NTFS format.

    I don't really know,
    but you might simply
    divide 160 in half.

    that way you can
    partition once and
    be done with it.

    also, it wouldn't be
    a bad idea to change
    the default for mydocs
    from the partition with
    the o.s. to the new one.

    that way if the time
    comes you have to
    reformat or reinstall
    the o.s.,

    you will have mydocs
    preserved in the new
    partition.

    or you can simply
    copy your default
    my docs to the new
    partition occasionally.

    the point is to expect
    the unexpected

    Also, which service pack level are you at?

    You should be at sp2 or ideally sp3

    perhaps, you should
    worry about posting
    your moronic solutions
    and shut up,

    Julie provided info in a previous post.

    http://groups.google.ca/group/micro...read/thread/c8e3b18193ab0dfe/5458720ad3f77f90

    MS-7309 is an MSI K9N6PGM2, which has an Nforce 6150SE
    chipset. That would make it post-2003 vintage and
    the BIOS should have any 48 bit LBA support necessary.

    The OS on May 31st was SP3.

    Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600

    It's possible the Windows installer CD is not slipstreamed
    up to SP3, and by using the older installer CD, that installer
    restricts partition size to the 28 bit LBA limit. If the Service
    Pack 3 was slipstreamed into the installer CD, it's possible the
    whole disk could be used for C: by the installer.
