Hi, I have a 200GB maxtor hardrive, which I want to use as a slave drive, and I have windows 98se installed on my computer. Can someone tell me how to install the harddrive with the full 200GB rather then limiting it to 137GB please.
I have a KG7 RAID Motherboard.

Be sure to check and see if you need a BIOS update for your MB to support a drive of that size. Windows 98SE will also need some sort of "drive overlay" usually available at your drive manufacturers website.

I already updated the bois.
At the maxtor website they have a program called Big Drive Enabler. But it says it is only compatible with Windows 2000 and Windows XP home/professional.
