When you installed you hard drive you had to format it But you also had use FDISK this allows you to create something called partitions, you need this to allow the hard drive to accept information, you also create the FAT which is a File Allocation Table Next in the BIOS you must enable Large Drive Support This will allow you PC to recognize the full 20 GB.
