I'm a little confused. You had an old computer with ME on it already (spare PC using WinME) and you put in the spare hard drive and installed ME on it also?
Having a spare 60Gb Hdisk; I thought I would stick it on a spare PC using WinME. Its a 1.2Gz pentium4 with 256DDRam. I reformatted the disk, installed ME ( Just to play around with some old hardware) I now find I only have 2Gb on C: Can someone tell me where I went wrong please? Incidently; even though I have the HDD jumpers on master; It always shows on slave. Please don't tell me I must reformat.

You have it at the end of the ribbon cable. correct? Try setting it to cable select. Instead of auto-select in the BIOS you can manually enter the info, in some cases. It's been a while since I've done it. I'd have to jog my memory. How old is this computer? Will it even recognize 60g properly? I don't think it will, Is large block addressing enabled in the BIOS? Is it even there? I have a real old one that does the same thing. I tried a 40g and it shows as slave no matter what and only 38g I use a live Linux CD in it until I can score a 20g drive
It is the only drive. the BIOS just shows it as"Primary slave" even though jumper is set for "Master"

Well, there must have been a reason it was just sitting around.
Did everything you suggested, no joy. Strange thing is; I took the disk off spare PC, put it on my present PC. Reformatted the drive. Converted it to NTFS, and it still shows 2 Gb. Would you say the disk is f****d.
