    Harddrive appears as 50gb, when its a 250gb *Solved*
    « on: May 21, 2009, 05:44:05 AM »
    Hello.

    I just modded my pc, with a new motherboard and new harddrive. I chose til partition the 250 into one part @50gb and one @ 200gb. In windows i just see the 50gb. I have a xp cd, and tried to boot with it, but i cant get the screen up where u choose to partition.

    Im new to the forum, and Norwegian so execuse my English:)

    thanks for replying!

    Go to start - run - type diskmgmt.msc and hit enter.
    From there you'll be able to see the other 200GB partition, format it, and assign a dirve letter so it's accessible in Windows.
    Hope this helps, and welcome to the forums.
