I recently got a new 250gb ide harddrive as a storage drive
When i installed it i discovered that the bios on my machine was too old and restricted the size of hardrives to 32gb

I therefore bought a ide controller card to run it off that. My problem is that i've installed it but i am still only able to make a partition 32gb in size

Any help would be much appreciated

Cheers

Check the jumpering, it sounds like you have the "capacity limiting" jumper on it.

What's the make/model of hard disk?
