    Does it recognise it as 120gig in bios?
    Fdisk - I assume you're using a dos/98/whatever bootdisk - try the updated fdisk on bootdisk.com (about half way down the page) to cope with larger drives

    I Are you saying you have already partitioned it and installed windows ? If so maybe you only partitioned 50 gigs of it ? If so, you can make a second partition with the free space. Also was it an NTFS or FAT32 partition ?
