Hello all,

I have a ACER EXTENSA 6600, 60 GB HDD which i upgraded to 160 GB. The Phoenix BIOS shows the model of the new harddisk correctly which is a Samsung HM 160HC, but no BIOS options of changing HDD parameters.

Windows XP reports the HDD as 103.3 GB. The Service pack is SP3 and BigLBA in registry is also enabled. I tried using Partition magic but PM also reads the HDD as 103.3 GB. Strange!

Since i was expecting this problem i started with a 40 GB single partition in the new harddisk to install XP and later updated to SP3. Now in XP disk management I see the new HDD as 103.3GB. What should i do?
