I have tried that a few ways. I've tried formatting it externally first, all partitions less than 137gb. I have tried installing windows on a 20gb partition and then through windows disk management partitioning all unallocated space to under 137gb. It still only ends up seen 137gb available when you add up the partitions.
I have also tried Western Digitals Data Lifeguard Tools 11.2 for DOS (CD)
and that won't see the entire drive no matter how it is partitioned.
I have all the updated drivers from acer, and completely updated windows XP Pro.
Pilot101, are you running a HD larger than 137gb? and OT, are you a licensed pilot, what do you fly?
