Laurent,

You missed it, there is a Drive size limit with Windows 2000, But it has been fixed in SP4, you can try this

To enable 48-bit LBA large-disk support in the registry:

1) Start ---> regedit

2) Locate and then click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Atapi\Parameters

3) On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value name: EnableBigLba
Data type: REG_DWORD
Value data: 0x1

4) Quit Registry Editor.



This will work in following conditions

* A computer with a 48-bit LBA-compatible Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) installed.

* A computer with a hard disk that has a capacity of greater than 137 gigabytes (GB).
