Proliant 1600 - new 18.2 Gb HDD -NT only sees 9Gb

I have been asked to re-install O/S NT4.0 onto a brand new 18.2 Gb disk. Whilst running the install comes up with 1024 Cylinders - Use sector translation modes Large hard disks in CMOS drive typesettings. New to Compaq kit and have no idea how to change this option from the F10 utils ?? Please help!

Is this running off the embedded scsi controller or a Compaq/HP array controller? Either way it should not matter. I recommend trying to clear the NVRAM on the server and retrying your install. You can get there by pressing F10 during post and at the main menu do a CTRL + A ..you will get a prompt stated advanced mode enabled. Choose system config -> config hardware...review and modify... option 3 (view edit) page down twice and select erease non volatile memory. shut unit down reboot and rerun F10. this time if it states to use backup SCI file choose no and let unit auto config itself. Hope this helps.
