Another Computer Tech question for the gurus

Hey all, I'm installing an 80gb drive in my friends Windows 2000 system. I'm setting up an NTFS partition but each time it gets to the 35gb range it stops. It thought this problem was only with FAT32. I even tried making several smaller drives but it always stops at around the same point of the drive. Any help is always appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Another Computer Tech question for the gurus

maybe a bad drive? I would try to add it to another similar system and see if you have the same issue...

Re: Another Computer Tech question for the gurus

Explain this one. I started messing around with it. If I moved the partition size up by 2 gb at a time then formatted I was able to get to 71gb. If I went up by 3gb it failed. This was very wierd.

if the hard drive came with a CD then you should try using that if you haven't yet...

I actually went out to WD's site and downloaded the latest installer and it was unable to help. Only the 2gb at a time thing worked.
