way. There is a jumper picture here (because I may not be

A card like this can be used to solve the size problem.
But you will need a driver installed to use the card.
I have one of these in an older machine, and the boot
drive is connected to it.

And this document from Seagate offers some advice on
using large disks. (137GB is decimal gigabytes while
128GB refers to the binary way of counting the same
I trust this is not a master/slave jumper issue...
