I just did a lot of playing with all of my computer equipment in order to learn a bit...anyways I took my 300 gB HDD from one computer and put it on a lesser computer, on which I am going to install an evaluation version of Win2000 Server. Then I took the 40 gG HDD from the lesser computer and put in on the better computer. Ok...now the problem...Win2000 server setup recognizes 131068 mB of hdd space on two seperate unpartitioned spaces. And I find this abnormal for 3 reasons... first - I know windows will only recognize 137 gB of each partition, but why 131 gB. second - usually unpartitioned space is combined into one, not 2 seperate spots And by the way, everything worked fine before the HDD swap and everything reads fine in the BIOS. I also tried to partition the hdd before the installation with a seagate utility that came with the hdd, but windows wouldn't recognize that properly either. Thanks for any suggestions.
