Does doing a complete reinstall and format of the drive still report it as a 137GB?

If you reinstalled XP, including SP2 the OS should be able to handle it.
and you turned on LBA in the BIOS, then it should work.
If not, Atola Technology has a free tool for fixing the drive (but like a format you may lose the contents)
