Use BIOS to check if the new hdd is recognized(IDE configuration or similar).

Boot into the BIOS and verify all SATA controllers are enabled. Some older boards have some SATA ports that do not support bootable drives. In those cases you can use the port for storage drives.

If you are trying to install WinXP on the new drive the capacity of the drive is not the issue. WinXP doesn't natively support SATA controllers. So, you either need to supply the drivers on floppy disk at the very start of the install or slipstream the drivers into your WinXP files. Also, WinXP without any service packs does not support drives larger than 137GB.

You are making us guess at your problem because you have not provided enough information.

Even if your motherboard didn't support 48bit LBA you probably would see the drive as 137GB.

Look for the new drive in Windows Disk Management. If found there you may need to partition and format it there.

If the hard drive that WinXP is currently installed on is an IDE type and the new drive is a SATA type, you need to install the SATA controller drivers to WinXP.

Tell us what type of hard drive (IDE/SATA) WinXP is installed on.

The disk is recognized with the serial number in the Device Manager. It is a SATA HDD and the existing 80GB Harddisk is also a SATA harddisk and hence SATA controller may not be required. If you can tell me how to do WDM and formatting it will be of help to me... Thank you.

Are you running at least SP1?

When first starting the computer POST screens are displayed. Verify the 1TB is properly configured by both the model number AND the FULL drive capacity.

To access Windows Disk Management Right click My Computer. Choose manage> storage> disk Management. Once in disk management right click the 1TB disk to see the options to partition and format.

After getting your clue about Windows Disk Management i googled on that item and they have given step by step instructions about the problem similar to the one that i have encountered. Simply type compmgmt.msc at run command and then format the disk which was already recognised. That did the trick for me and it worked.
Bingo ..
Thank you the clue about Windows Disk Management was very helpful to me sir.
