HI Anyone here,
I've recently purchased a Hitachi 500 GB on eBay. I have been working with PartitionMagic and more recently Acronis Partition program (recommended from some one here and it does seem to be a better program than PartitionMagic) to set up partitions on the 500 GB drive only to have all but about 100 GB of the partitions lost every time.
I've heard that I was suppose to get a special disk with the 500 GB drive to re-program Windows XP to except all the 500 GB. I did not get this disk and/or program with the hard drive.
I've also heard that Windows XP was made before they hardly conceived of this large of a drive so XP wasn't made to handle this large of a drive.
Anyhow, does anyone know where I may get this update to XP so that I can start using all 500 GB on my new Hitachi 500 GB Hard Drive? Anyone?
