When first time ran Samsung NC10, there was no prompt to make Samsung recovery partition, also Samsung recovery was not installed on HDD, after setting Up WinXP, decided to try to install samsung recovery, however installation failed- says: no recovery partition on disk D: , when booting up, I can see :press F4 for Samsung recovery.
Also got now 3 partitions: 20.59+123.81+4.65 that’s roughly 150Gb, but not something supposed about 160 on my Hitachi HDD. Is it same with yours?
Its because WIndows (and most 3r4d Party apps)sees 1024mb as 1 Gb (which is the technically more correct figure) however HDD manufactures presume that 1Gb is 1000mb for simplicitys sake

yup, basically it’s a lack of mathematical accuracy both on the OS and the manufacturers part.
generally with any hard drive you should expect to receive 10% less than the stated capacity in useable space.
Hard drive manufacturers always state info in MB, GB, etc. These are based on 10^x values.
1000 B = 1KB
1000 KB = 1MB
1000 MB = 1 GB
However, computers reference everything on powers of 2 (so actual computer size is based on 1024^x). This is how most software references size due to the fact that it’s doing computer power. However, until recently companies were sort of using them interchangeable. A while back, the SI organization defined some units to clear up the matter officially (although, not everyone uses it–Microsoft doesn’t, a lot of Linux stuff does).
1024 B = 1 KiB
1024 KiB = 1 MiB
1024 MiB = 1 GiB
So, your 160 GB harddrive will show up as 149 GiB (GB in Windows).
