    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me how can I format a 4GB (and bigger) hard drive using diskpart? This is what I used:

    LIST DISK
    SELECT DISK 2
    CLEAN
    CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
    SELECT PARTITION 1
    ACTIVE
    FORMAT QUICK FS=NTFS
    ASSIGN
    EXIT

    When I checked the disk size, it was only 2GB. How can I get around this 2GB barrier? I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 [32-bit].
    Thank You.
