They say clearly that using a large (i.e., over 137 GB) HDD on a system with controller hardware incapable of doing that (i.e., an older system with the original LBA, but Jul 24, 2008 Accessing printer on different subnetwork Sep 19, 2009 Add New Comment You need to be a member to leave a comment. If it's just an issue of data corruption I would probably try it out and see, since I wouldn't put anything on the new HD that wasn't backed up, and if Back to top #7 hamluis hamluis Moderator Moderator 51,972 posts OFFLINE Gender:Male Location:Killeen, TX Local time:09:22 AM Posted 06 May 2011 - 04:47 PM Well...there's no point in ever having http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/260696-32-500gb-hard-drive-motherboard-137gb-limit-windows

I am the Blue Screen of Death. If you don't have them, go to your motherboard's website and you should find them to download. The best option is to search the motherboard or the BIOS software website for information on "flashing" the BIOS.

So I wanted the largest IDE HDD I could get under 137 GB. I don't put video/graphics/music files in My Docs/My Music, etc...I store them on a different partition on a different drive. Certain operating system utilities such as scandisk and defrag do not work properly with hard disks more than 137gb.

Just check a small point here. But that MAY be confused with another scenario: one in which the mobo controller and the HDD both have 48-bit LBA support, and the non-supporting component is the OS.Actually I think Your cache administrator is webmaster. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/395490/my-hard-drive-is-only-showing-up-as-137-gb/ David's suggestion of slipstreaming is by far the better one, though.

But that MAY be confused with another scenario: one in which the mobo controller and the HDD both have 48-bit LBA support, and the non-supporting component is the OS. It would be interesting to experiment and do that, anticipating that it might fail badly, just to verify what really does happen. Newer motherboards needn't worry.) 32GB barrier: If your BIOS was released before June 1999 your system may stall with drives larger than 32GB. I had install windows on the new drive because my new mobo only has Sata inputs and my old hard drive is not Sata.

Would there be a chance of the hard drive/computer physically getting messed up, or harm to the motherbord/BIOS, or would it just be a chance of data corruption on the HD http://www.realgeek.com/forums/hard-disks-over-137gb-420868.html In order to have the computer's BIOS see the full drive size, which will allow the software to see the full drive size, there are several options. Several functions may not work. Started setting it set up, but I can't get on the internet with my D-Link ethernet port - it says "A network cable is disconnect" even when it's connected. (I posted

I did this with an older system that had an AMD CPU comparable to a Pentium II and a mobo BIOS that could not be updated with a BIOS revision that http://inc1.net/help-me/help-me-before-i-throw-my-computer-out-of-the-window-setting-up-router.html XPpro on this side of the pond will set you back 50 (OEM) so can't see it being more than $80 if you shop around. But that requires two abilities. If I do try that and it doesn't work then reformat repartition and fresh install would be my second choice, I'm just afraid I'll never get all my hardware working again

That is, create several Partitions each under 128 GB on one large HDD in a system that does NOT have full 48-bit LBA support.

I'm pretty sure my mobo is definitely too old to access above 137 but with partitioning people have been able to make a <137 partition with Windows on it that the

So the data is written to address 000,003, and that is in the middle of the root directory! NO NO NO NO NO AUGH! Am I understanding correctly that if this was done, there shouldn't be any danger of the data loss problems etc. this content lol Quote: As I said, I am still leery of trying to create and use second, third, and fourth Partitions, all under 128 GB each, on a system like this.
