I installed a new 500 GB SATA drive on my old computer, using a PCI/SATA
controller. In the Device Manager, the drive shows under Disk Drives and as
working properly. The controller shows as a SCSI/Raid Controller and as
In Disk Management, I let Windows initialize the drive to Basic. The new
drive shows in Windows Disk Management as Disk 2, Basic, 465.76 GB (giga).
OK, but when I right click on the drive in Disk Management, I get a choice
between 'Partition' and 'Properties'. When I try to partition the drive,
Windows tells me that the maximum partition can only be 476,939 MB (mega)!!
What is wrong?
In the Bios, in the IDE HDD Auto Detection, there are only the two existing
IDE drives and the floppy and CD Rom. Where would one normally find the SATA
drive? I cannot not find it anywhere in the Bios.
