Windows would fail to start up occasionally, and I had to do start-up repair a few times. 2 months in, Windows failed again, I started start-up repair, and it didn't work. I tried slipstreaming SP6 and presetting the EnableBigLBA registry fix. Bought a brand new Seagate Barracuda 500Gb PATA drive and after playing around with it, the drive became a 137Gb drive.
