    I am doing a fresh install on an AMD 1.5 Mghs w 256mb of
    ram. Loaded Western Digital hard disk setup for 120 gig
    drive no partitions, then loaded Win Serv 2003, it only
    identified a 32 gig drive. I reset the hard disk with
    partitions, then reloaded WinServ 2003 same output, 32 gig

    Is there a step I'm missing? Please help.

  2. Hi,

    You'll need an ATA PCI card, since it seems like your BIOS is limited to
    non-LBA (and hence, your BIOS is actually limited to seeing 32 GB, not the
    OS installed)
