tuvok sorry for not saying before...here's what happens when i enable LBA in BIOS:
it recognises my 80gb hd and it despalys it as it should be in Standard CMOS Feature
after bios and before loading windows thats what it says:
Primary Master Disk: LBA, UDMA 66, 2139MB (instead of 80gb)
Primary Slave : none
Sec Slave :CDROM, UDMA 33
Verifying DMI Pool Data...Update Success
Missing Operating System...
Then i go back to bios in Standard CMOS Feature and the hd is changed to 2139MB...
As u can see for some reason BIOS doesn't like the win partition. Think i just put the hd in another pc save the data if i can and reinstall everything from scratch...i hope this doesn't happen again...the only thing i am wondering now is when i do the partition should i make smaller partitions, is it possible that grub or lilo have problem of recognising big hd partitions?
thanx for all ur help, i'd love to find the solution of this prob but sometimes it gets tooo confusing.
