Netserver LH 6000r - cannot see larger then 8GB

Hello everyone,

I have been forced to install a 200GB IDE harddrive in a HP Netserver LH 6000r but the BIOS only recognizes it as an 8GB drive.

Can anyone tell me if a BIOS or a BIOS ROM update will cure this?

I am somewhat of a newbie so i don't really know the difference between the BIOS and BIOS ROM.

I found the download page with both BIOS and BIOS ROM updates but i don't know if that will solve my problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I too am having the same issue on a Proliant 6500 however my limit is 128gb. The drive is also a 200gb drive.

Am hoping that a firmware upgrade will make the difference however the most recent firmware is dated 2000.... quite a while prior to the necessity of >128gb support.

I will advise if it worked one way or the other but suspect it will not.
