Norton Utilities won't run on new HDD

Norton Utilities (all drive checking, drefragging tools etc.) won't run on my 80GB D: drive.

It complains that "the drive may not be configured correctly".

Recently upgraded this drive from a 20GB one, by installing, fdisking, and formatting the new drive on secondary IDE and copying everything from D: to it, then moving the new drive to the primary IDE. BIOS is set to auto-detect, and everything seems normal.

No other "checkers" I have seems to think there is a problem with the drive. Norton ran perefectly OK on the previous 20Gb drive.

Anyone got any ideas ?, I'm head-scratching on this one ...

the registry patch to skip the lba check for the drive > 8Gb seems to have do the biz, thanks.
