Does anyone know how to install a 200Gb ATA (IDE Pri Master) Drive and setup windows XP Pro when the installation disc does not have SP1 and therefore no 42Mb LBA.


i.e. The hard drive is only recognised as 132Gb not the full 200Gb.


Or can you tell me how to resize the primary partition once I have isntalled SP1&2...

I tried making a slip stream cd with sp1 included in it and I never could get it to work. If you decide to try you will only need your original XP cd to get an image from. Then once you make the slip strem cd that is what you will use that to load windows.

So the theory goes.
