Default hard disk problems (motherboard related?)


I bought a 120gig hard drive for my dads pc, Installed it as primary master, it crashed the system when detecting the hard drive, So i thought the motherboard might not support hdds that large, so i flashed the bios, (***********, great it boots now, so i put the windows 2k disc in, and start the install process.

I set a 10 gig partion for windows, and leave the other 110 unpartioned, I get in to windows and start the formating of the 110 d drive, takes about 30-40 minutes and says "windows cannot format this drive" so okay fine, i go in to dos, format d:, but it says the drive is only 40gig.

Now this is most confusing, Fdisk is saying 106% space is free on the drive?

Any idea what the hell is going on?
