I decided to upgrade my 110CT from a 4 GB drive to a 120 GB and to Windows 2000. Here's how I did it. These instructions will work for any drive that is over 8 GB in size with the 100CT/110CT Librettos. The BIOS in the 100/110CT oly recognizes a hard drive up to 8 GB in size.
What you will need:
1. Libby 110CT with ac adapter & port replicator (for mouse), and the PCMCIA floppy disk drive
2. Patition Magic 8 boot floppies
3. Windows 98 Boot Floppy
4. USB to 2.5" drive adapter and access to a Windows 2000 SP4 or XP computer that has Partition Magic 8 loaded.
1. Put the drive in the Libby and boot to Partition Magic 8. PM8 will see the drive as an 8 GB drive. PM8 uses the BIOS info to get the drive size. A mouse makes things muche easier with PM8 so plug one in.
2. Set up your first patition or two. I set the first patition as a PRIMARY 2 GB FAT partition for DOS. The rest of the 8 GB drive was set as a PRIMARY FAT32. This is where I will load Win2K.
3. Pull the drive and attach it to an XP computer with PM8 on it. Use a USB to 2.5" IDE adapter. XP will see it as a flash drive. The rest of the drive will be visable.
4. Creat a PRIMARY partition that is 200mb in size. This is where the Libby BIOS will write the hiberation file to. If you don't set aside space then the Libby 100/110CT will corrupt your data that is at the end of the 8 GB boundry. I made the partition a Linux swap space so that DOS & Windows will leave it alone. The Libby BIOS will write it blindly to the space right after the 8 GB boundry. This is why we first used PM8 to set up the first 8 GB of space. The Libby BIOS will leave enough space for it's hibernation file.
5. Create the last partition. I made mine all FAT32. After PM8 finishes formatting the drive, make sure you set the the boot partition in the first 8 GB space to active. I copied all my Win2K install files there from my XP computer (don't forget the SP4 updates and IE6). I also put the DOS install files on my DOS FAT partition.
6. Put the new drive back into the Libby and boot using the Windows98 boot floppy. If you use a DOS boot floppy you will not be able to see the FAT32 partition with the Win2k install files!
7. Once you are booted log onto the C: drive, change directory to the i386 folder and run WINNT. Win2K will start to load.
8. Windows 2k SP2 and beyound will see the full drive with out a drive utility. If you use earlier OS such as Windows 98 you will need to install EZ-Drive to get beyound the 8 GB barrier.
I've done this a number of times for my 100CT and 110CT Libbretos and never have had an issue.
