I am having exactlty the same problem except that fdisk will only 'read' 530 Mb on the old 740Mb drive I'm trying to install in a Pentium 100 for my daughter. It seems that once fdisk makes a size error it 'stamps' the hard drive with the erroneous size label and then will not alter this.

The only way out would be to overwrite this data from bios.

I tried a utility called 'insthelp.exe' that is supposed to clear the label but it didn't work for me. If I find anything that works I'll come back to this thread.
