I have a 300GB drive in a windows box, and the bios detects 300.1GB, but windows only sees 128GB. Is this just a windows problem? How can I fix it?

Windows LBA problem; use a newer version of Windows to install or update your current install.

Yes, most probably. Which Windows version are we talking about?
