But should I really only have 13GB left on a 120GB Hard Drive?Anyone have any idea what is going on here?? 13 answers Last reply Dec 30, 2013 Best Answer Dec maury73Jun 28, 2006, 3:02 AM Where it appears as 128GB? as if it had been set to RAID . I suspect that the WD software thinks the drive consists of a 1043GB SSD with no HDD, and therefore refuses to install.

I took it and installed it in another pc but instead of 250GB bios and windows recognize only 33GB. Let it continue running until the sector count reached 290 million, then stopped it. Now i instaled it on a motherboard ASRock K8NF&G-VSTA and it only reconizes 33GB on bios, on windowsxp the disk doesn't appear, on linux the disk shows it's full capacity.
