Are you sure that the drive (in machine's SETUP) is configured to LBA?
I had the same trouble with a Maxtor hd (10Gb) and it only worked ok
when I did a ROM update in my QDI board. Look for the page of your
mainbord manufacturer and find an update.

Interesting... It worked after I entered the drive's geometry by hand
and LBA mode...
