Post Re: Why is my 320gb hard drive only reading 141gb?

Any suggestions on what I can do?

Also I figure I should ask another questions to: How do you unlink a RAID 0 array?
What version of XP ? prior to SP1 ?

You need at least SP1 for LBA48 (HDDs bigger than 128GB).

You could use a smaller partition for your XP installation, upgrade it to SP2+, and then partition the rest of the hdd.

Also you could slipstream the SP2 with your XP CD.

Good luck
