Okay, I have my new 200G hard drive set up as a slave, and it is being shown when I reboot. Only problem is, it is showing only something like 34G of space on it. I have read online how to fix it, but cannot find the appropriate page with the instructions to save my life. I stumbled across it to begin with, and should have book marked it.
Assuming you are using Windows XP, right click on My Computer and select Manage. Click once on Disk Management and then you should see all your physical drives. You can right click on a section of drive and choose to create a partition or format it.
It seems like somehow your has a 35GB partition on it already, which is strange. Might want to delete that one and create one large partition of the whole drive.
Not sure how much you already know of this stuff or if it's what you were looking for, but there you have it.
Originally posted by StaggerLeeFound out my processor and motherboard wont support anything larger than an additional 40g. So, guess I am stuck buying a new one if I want to use my new hard drive. Thanks for all the help guys!
Ah, the old slippery slope I always end up on. Like last year when I wanted to upgrade my motherboard cause it was the only major piece I hadn't in a while. So I got the nicest one money could buy and whoops, forgot to measure the case. Ok, no problem, bought a swank new case and stuck it in there...oh, wait my power supply won't work with this board. Great, um ok I needed a stronger one anyway in time so let's go all out with one good enough to run SLi, and throw in some extra RAM just....well cause the motherboard supported higher speed RAM than my last one. And hell those Core 2 Duo's sure aren't priced bad and this board can take one so heck why not.
About two months later I got sick of having the capability to run SLI but not two cards so I bought two 7900's and now I think I'm done. Maybe.
Gotta do your research first, that's the lesson here.
One avenue you might try is getting a USB enclosure in which you can attach your drive to another computer as an "external" USB drive. I'm guessing that's pretty much what Option A is anyway. I believe the G5 drive is a 3.5" Sata drive....
