Default Large Hard Drive and Ubuntu Server 8.04

I have an NTFS formatted, 1TB (1000GB) SATA hard-drive which I installed in an external case and connected it via a USB connection to my new Ubuntu Server (a rather elderly Athlon 1100) on an Asus A7VL-VM motherboard.

I am unable to read the whole drive and am wondering if I am facing a problem with Ubuntu reading such a drive size or whether it is the BIOS on my motherboard. The Motherboard Manual is quiet on the maximum hard-drive size.

Going through /var/syslog shows this message:-

Jan 20 16:28:12 ubuntu-server kernel: [155200.020538] usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3

I also have another external drive installed, a Maxtor 200GB, that; also formatted NTFS, reads fine.

Any comments much appreciated.

According to http://www.linux-usb.org/FAQ.html#ts6 , you could try to boot the system with the noapic boot option.
