Windows 7: HDD size reporting very wrong

HDD size reporting very wrong

Hi,

I've been running RC1 for a few weeks now and I have 3 SATA HDD's installed. A few days ago, one of the drives started reporting a wrong partition size. The drive and size show fine in BIOS, however.

The drive in question is a 250 gig drive, and it is showing as a 100mb drive, at current! When I first installed, it was reporting correctly. The drive is, and was, empty. The other 2 drives are reporting correctly. This happened seemingly out of the blue.

Any ideas? I've tried uninstalling the drive via Windows and scanning, tried reinstalling chipset drivers, etc. Thanks!

So I have been experiencing my time in Windows 7 64 bit OS being out by large amounts. Years off, random dates from the past and even into the future. I did a lot of investigation into this and to me it seems to point to error in communication between the OS and the MB? The BIOS has never...
