win xp with service pk2 i have installed a samsung 250GB hard drive but in xp is only seen as 127GB although the bios reports it correctly as 250GB
i have made the following registry change but has no effect
You need service pack 2 do you have SP" installed?
Shows 127G not 160G or Higher In Windows, click on Start->Run, enter "regedit". # Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Parameters registry subkey. # From the Edit menu, select New, DWORD Value. # Enter the name EnableBigLba, then press Enter. # Double-click the new value, set it to 1, then click OK. # Close the registry editor. # Restart the machine for the change to take effect
