8K7A+ Problem with 250gig harddrive

I heard back from Epox and they told me my mobo was too "old" for the 250gb drive I just bought, even though I want it in 3 partitions? Has anyone used a drive larger than 137gb with the 8k7A+ ?? How did you do it? Running WinXP Pro w/sp2 already.

Wink Solutions ...

Try this item first:
'Setup the drives again using DiscWizard Starter Edition. This will determine if a Dynamic Drive Overlay (DDO) is required to overcome a BIOS limitation, and apply the DDO automatically if it is needed.'

here: http://www.seagate.com/support/kb/di.../bios.html#ddo

this should solve it for you, if you have a Seagate drive that is.

If you have another make, look at their disk support for something similar.
All big makers have something like it ...

It 's the Ontrack Boot Diskette you really need; that comes free with the disk support from the maker (this one anyway) ...

got it the way I wanted it before a bios update addressed the issue. I found it on the maxtor cd that came with the drive, Called Dynamic Disk Overlay, It triicks the pc into seeing a drive smaller than it is, BUT you still get to use all of it. I split it up into 3 partitions, which is what I wanted anyhow.
Thank You Guys now onto my htp prob
