Hi
Need help on one subject. My mainboard ABIT KT7A does not recognise
correctly 200GB Western Digital HDD and shows only 137GB capacity. Is
there any remedy for this? Thanks for help.

update the BIOS (if one is available that addresses the issue)
or
get a controller card that has an on-board BIOS capable of 48bit addressing
(supports drives larger than 137GB)

Lastly, make sure you are using WinXP SP1 or higher, or Win2K SP3 or higher
for proper 48bit support in the OS.
