Was this 80GB cloned (copied) from an old 30GB disk?

Open Computer Management window doing this:

Start button - settings - control panel - administrative tools - computer management.
In the window that open, on the left hand side pane, expand Storage and click Disk Management. On the left hand side window, lower pane you should see a list of disks. See Disk 0,Basic <disk size>, Online. Do you see the 80GB as disk size? To the right you would see a series of boxes. Probably you see (C:) 30GB NTFS Healthy (system). Do you see to the right of it a box with 50GB (unknown partition)?

If so, you do have a 80GB disk, but only 30GB is a recognized partition by Windows. You can still use the the unknown partition. Post back here if you need instructions.

How to format excelstor hardisk?


For your specific operating system, assuming that Windows is running, locate Admistrative Tools -> Disk management.
You should see Disk 0 or Disk 1 with your Excelstor 80GB drive: if you do not have a partition, create one or more partition, assign drive letter(s) and then format using the context menu.
If you do not see the drive in the Disk Management screen, then your Bios has not been setup properly or your drive is not connected properly.
Hope it helps.

I have changed hard drive to ExcelStor Callisto 80GB, and i can't update windows xp sp1 to sp2


What error-message(s) do you get?

Access http://www.microsoft.com/downloads
and download Windows XP Service Pack 3,
and install it.

You do *NOT* need to install SP2 before installing SP3.

I have 80 gb of harddisk but its showing only 31 gb wht maybe possibly prpb.. its samsung hard disk and i have installed windows xp


I am guessing it is an older machine. consider trying the following:
GO to  START - HELP AND SUPPORT - SYSTEM RESTORE - SETTINGS - SYSTEM RESTORE SETTINGS -SETTINGS - Try changing to SAVE LESS.
Maybe this is where all of your space went .
Also clean the HD: . START -  MY COMPUTER - rRight click HARD DRIVE -  DISK CLEAN UP - (AFTER THAT'S DONE) click TOOLS - DEFRAGMENT NOW.

Cant install ubuntu 7.04 on Excelstor J880 SATA Drive


From what I know, both your motherboard and your hard drive work with Ubuntu. I would try the newest release, 8.04 (Hardy Heron). 
Try setting the motherboard into AHCI mode rather than IDE mode (you should be able to change this under hard drive settings in your BIOS)
Also, the problem may be with your optical drive. Try swapping that out.  If you can't solve it from there, if you haven't already, try posting on the ubuntu forums.

Most likely the problem is that you have another blank partition. The Microsoft disk management tool can probably solve this. This is a tutorial on how to use it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000/

Let us know if this works out for you.
