I have an older xp laptop (dell inspiron 6000) with an 80 gb hard drive that's full. I bought a 320 gb pata hard drive to replace it, knowing there's going to be a 137 gb partition issue. Windows should be fine with it, as I have rollup update 2 installed, but the BIOS won't like the big drive and there's no update available. I've googled around and seen people have gotten around the issue for 250 gb drives but no one has said how they do it. Does this sound like a decent plan of action? --> Put the 320 gb laptop drive in a usb case and plug it into a vista desktop, use vista to partition it into three 100 gb partitions. Then connect it to the laptop via usb, and use norton ghost to copy the old drive drive over, then replace the old disk with the new one. Will I be able to see all 3 partitions in xp? Thanks.
