Installed Seagate 200 GB
I installed Seagate 200 gb hard drive. It is my new boot drive, old one
failed. I had to install the hard drive with the 137 gb limitation as my
original XP Professionial was pre SP1. I now have everything installed.
Bios recognizes the 200 gb capacity. Now that Windows XP sp 2 is installed
on the new 200 gb drive, how do I get Windows to use the whole 200 gb drive
and not just the 137 gb. Tried to get help from Seagate but their help is
somewhat lacking. Their literature says you can get Windows to recognize the
whole 200 after installation but never tells you how.

You can use Acronis Disk Director or BootItNG to repartition your drive any
way you want it..
