Ok, so I just built a new computer, when i installed windows xp pro i created a 20GB partition for the OS and other system programs. So all is well, but when i just my Administrative Tools it says that all my stuff is going on the 20GB partition and the other 230GB on the drive are unallocated. When i got to create a new partition it can only partition up to 23GB per partition, so do i just create 4 partitions or is there something i can do to make it a 230GB partition? thank you all for your input.

When you purchased your new HD you should have received a disk (CD or floppy). It will have a utility that will enable you to create 137gb partitions. If you did not receive the disk go to the manufacture's web site and download it.
Good luck.


Ok by the way :thumbsup: to BC
