Looks like we all had this problem with our 160gb (or above) HDDs
Yep, u use one of the service packs 1or2. But for future use, ie format etc, ull need to Slipstream (Intregated) ur copy of XP with SP1 or SP2. it can be done fairly easily by reading the guides below...
Slipstream xp with SP1
Slipstream XP with SP2
If u now have a 127gb and a 25gb partition, ull need to use a partition manager to join both partitions. Or next time u format, be sure to have a Slipstream copy of XP, and fdisk/create a new partition...sasarchiver
PS 149gb is about right. u dont get exactly 160gb mine is 152gb, a 127 and a 25.37gb partition.
