Just got a 80Gig Maxtor, partioned it into (2) 38s and formated in DOS. Win2K almost boots, but after loading some memoy resident programs it restarts goes through a scan disk on the other harddisk and repeats this process. I can remove it and the system boots fine. I know there are limits on the size hard disk that some OS can handle, but I'm new to Win2K. My system is as follows: P4B533-V, Windows 2000, Primary HD 40Gig Maxtor Partioned 11.1/26.0. I just want to use the 80Gig for a data disk.
