Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook
I just purchased a new 320 gig SATA drive, but XP -SP2 won't recognize more than 137 gigs. I've partitioned it (with lifeguard tools) to three- 100+ gig partitions, but windows always reverts to 137 gigs. I've used overlays before, starting in the early '90s, and never had this problem.
The chipset is Intel 865 family, I/O controller is 82801EB (ICH5).
How can I FORCE an overlay on there to get my full capacity? Or at the very least, make the partitions stay put?
Ignore the product listed, what I have is a Gateway "profile 500" desktop computer with built in flat panel monitor, 3.4 ghz pentium IV and 1 gig ram.
The hard drive you bought is not compatible with your motherboard. I am pretty sure that your board is only compatible with IDE ATA hard drive. you can still use it as external hard drive though.
