    http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

    For example, the Windows 98 SE bootdisk contains it.

    I've tried everything to get my 200GB Western Digital HDD to come up as such but it's only showing up as 137GB.

    I know that it's XP's fault, but I have SP1 and the registry key 'EnableBigLba' has been entered etc... anyone know a fix?

    Data Lifeguard Tools does NOT work, by the way.

    No. It's a well known problem with XP, but I'm having a hard time solving this puzzle. I've flashed my BIOS, inserted registry keys and tried WD's FAQ but nothing's worked so far. Even a BIOS update still doesn't recognise my HDD as 200GB although I can see it is in fact 200GB in my Device Manager.

    Have you installed XP Service Pack 1? XP, without SP1, has a drive size limitation of 137GB. :

    Edit: Thats were I would start ,download sp2 see if that works.

    SP1 is installed. SP2 is a load of crap (limits your connections), so had to use a third party patch to override it. However, the same problem was present on SP2.

    The link you posted has already been read by myself. Just type in Google 'Windows XP 137GB' and you'll see what I mean.

    It looks like I'm never gonna see my 63GB that's been MIA since I bought the damn thing!
