    Have you checked your hard disk's jumper settings for disk capacity limitation to 32 Gbytes?

    What is reporting that it can not read the exact size of the Hard Drive? Your motherboard or the Windows Installer disk?

Can't install windows XP on a new 500GB Hard Disk


go to the manufacturers website and see what bios updates there are ? If any relate to recognizing hard drive capacity then it will be worth while installing the update onto the motherboard.

If not then check your motherboard for enabling LBA and if you read the manual it should explain what each option is for.

Also might be worth while slip streaming your xp installation disc with the sata drivers for your motherboard ( the sata drivers you can get from your motherboard manufacturers website, download and extract them and then use nlite to combine the sata drivers with the xp disc and re burn the xp disc ensuring to make it bootable )

Nlite website

Seeing as you are combining drivers it may be worth while getting all the other drivers ie network card, graphics, audio etc and combing that with your bootable xp disc.

Hard drive not found


When is your hard drive not recognized?

At boot or in the BIOS?

You might haven connected your hard drive correctly or you'll need to enter bios and select an option for bios to detect your hard drives and save the new configuration.... otherwise there is a serious problem with your hard drive not functioning.

At windows XP?

You might need to enter windows ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS in the CONTROL PANEL and click in COMPUTER MANAGEMENT in there click STORAGE/DISK MANAGEMENT you'll see all your connected hard drives, your new hard drive should be listed there, but may not have a letter assigned/partitioned or formatted. Do so and it will be recognized.

If you're trying to install windows XP?

It's probably because your PC has the new SATA interface hard drives, you need to load a special SATA driver through floppy disk during at the beginning of windows XP setup, for it to find hard drives on your pc. You need to make this floppy disk with files that are available on your motherboard CD, in there are all the instructions you need.

750 GB Hard Drive support on intel 845 motherboard


Hi prabhatkumar, your Intel motherboard's bios will see the drive. The question is will windows?
Do not use windows to setup the hard disk drive. Download the free bootable software for a floppy disk from the manufacture's web site. Boot the system to the floppy & format the drive. You'll be able to set the cluster size (Like windows would do) but the software from the manufacture is far better than windows. Any version of windows XP will see your total drive size. Just make sure the drive is seen while in the bios. (If it will be the primary drive make sure it is listed in the boot order).

Good day prabhatkumar!
Run into any issues just drop me a note.
Mike

Gigabyte motherboard cd


You do not not need your motherboard CD to preform a format on your drive. Any windows CD. Win XP home, XP Pro, Win 2000 will format your hard drive. You can also use the hard drive's Mfg's utility disks & creat a bootable floppy disk or creat a bootable CDROM disk that will not only allow you to format the hard drive but also fun testing on the drive. You can even pick your cluster size & FAT file. Write down the name of your drive & model no#. Go to the Mfg's web site & download the utility software. Chances are Windows will have most of your boards drivers in it's data base. All you'll need to do is download from Gigabyte your missing drivers. You'll need you complete model no# & version no# if you can find it.

This may be a silly question, but have you set your BIOS to boot from CD first?
When you get to the post screen press any key to boot from cd.
The you can folow the prompts to go through the rest of the setup.
If this is what you are doing can you go into more depth of where you get up to?
