IDE HDDs greater than 8Gb need at least service pack 4 to work under NT, the
ATAPI driver in earlier versions will give the error you are getting. If
you are installing, you have a problem, the version of NT during the install
is SP1 (SP4 gets put on later). You need to download a version of the ATAPI
driver from SP4, and install it as a third party SCSI controller.
Q197667 explains it all and has a link to download the SP4 ATAPI driver
