Sorry to inflame you guys with yet another noob question.
I use win XP 32 bit. I understand that I only can see max 2TB. However this won’t show 2TB. The disk management only shows as 749GB.
Tried the HDD on some other PCs with win Xp 32 bit, and all shows only 749GB.
Have also tried possible solutions posted here and anywhere else to no avail. (diskpart —>clean etc). I can’t install Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (not compatible with the hardware and AHCI mode not enabled anyway).
Is there any other way? why only see 749GB, not 2TB? Is it because this HDD is too advanced for my hardware and my win XP sp-3? I have updated the bios, chipset.
a year ago i bought a 2TB external HDD (WD20EARS) and the same OS recognises it as 2TB in the disk management. Why not this time with WD30EZRX ?
