I have a WD1600AAJB Caviar SE IDE hard drive. I would like to limit it from 160GB to 32GB so I can use it in Windows 98. However the jumpers don't have any setting to limit it to 32GB and I've had a look on Google to see if there is. "standard" setting or anything but no luck.

Does anyone know how to limit it? Would using an access mode other than LBA help?

Ryzen 3700X | 16GB 3600MHz RAM | AMD 6800XT | 2Tb NVME SSD | Windows 10
AMD DX2-80 | 16MB RAM | STB LIghtspeed 128 | AWE32 CT3910
I have a vacancy for a main Windows 98 PC

See the "-N" parameter, ie. "Host Protected Area".

If run from Linux, will this retain the settings for a Windows installation? I did read it, but am unclear on whether it just needs setting once and will be as permanent as required.
