OK, so I bit on a prepackaged Dell 530s for a really low price on Black Friday, figuring I could reformat the drive and load my XP Pro on it. That worked ok, and after loading XP drivers for a few bits of hardware, almost everything is groovy.
Except, the 320GB SATA drive only formatted to 127GB. The BIOS shows it correctly as 320GB, but XP only sees it as 128. I have SP 1 through 3 loaded on, but still no large drive support. I've used my XP install CD on the daughter's computer a year or so ago, and last month when I added a 500GB HD it saw it correctly, so this image should be good.
I called Dell support, and they tell me this model desktop should work well with either XP or Vista, they build them both ways. They ran down the list of necessary drivers I would need to install, and I hit them all so that's not it.
What am I missing - and more importantly, how can I fix it? Do I need to start from scratch?
