    running win2k sp4 with an asus x series k8v-mx mother board. I have an 80g ide hd with windows installed and working fine. My second is a maxtor 250 ide that only shows up as having 128g on it. cmos shows it correctly. The system was only built last winter.
    Can anyone advise on how to access the whole drive? Thanks, Lou

    I went to the registry as the microsoft artricle instructs and added the key value. But as I try to change the value data, it wont let me put in the x. It only accepts numbers. Can you advise, thanks, Lou
