The motherboard BIOS most likely have a hard drive size limit. Yes you can create two or mare partitions to use the rest of the hard drive space.
Go to Control Panel - Administrator Tools - Disk Manager to create a partition and format this partition.

While trying to install PATA 250GB HD (XP Pro) only 130GB recognized. Upgraded BIOS to v1.4 (latest) and assured by Toshiba that this would enable computer to handle 250GB. No such luck. Accessed BIOS...


According to the detailed specs on that model, it came with a 60GB ATA-5 EIDI hard drive. therefore, you can use any ATA compatible (ATA-5, ATA-6 or ATA-100) EIDE/IDE drive that has jumpers enabling you to configure the drive as "Master". Western Digital Blue Scorpio and Seagate Momentus lines both have models that will fit the bill. You can find those drives at your neighborhood BestBuy or Staples pretty easily. I don't know if the A25 BIOS supports 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA), in spite of what toshiba says, If it only supports 24-bit LBA the maximum drive size is 137GB. If it supports 48-bit LBA then you can go as high as you can find drives available; usually 500GB. I suspect that it supports 48-bit LBA because various online vendors list up to 250GB drives for that model. The most important thing about the drive, though, is that it MUST be jumperable as 'master'. A cable select only drive won't work. Both the Western Digital and Seagate EIDE models have jumpers. hope this helps but if you need anything else just ask:)

I just bought a hard drive from ebay as a second drive its a western digital 250gb ide drive but my pc will not recognise it as a storage device but it installed the drivers! what am i doing wrong?


Hi:
often when you install a IDE driv ne that is as big as yours, you often need to run the WD installation software first. The easy way is to go to the WD website and download WD Data lifeguard tools program. you can try running it with that drive as a slave, or you can just install your new drive by itself, and go from there

Windows XP does not have built in SATA drivers. You will need to download the XP drivers from Western Digital's website and install before the computer will allow you to format and use your new drive. Hope this helps.
