    134217x1024= 137GB, The limit of your old HPT bios.

    That's probably because Win uses the bios for it's info.

    Find a newer bios that has the upgraded HPT upgraded bios in it. Sorry, I
    don't have one. Good luck with that.

    I don't use Windows. If you fdisked it under windows originally it may
    have only created a 128GB partition, and until you expand it, that's all
    it will show iirc.
