Need advice before purchase of new SATA HDD. I am not sure if I can replace existing drive with a very large drive. Running XP Home SP3. Would like to use 1TB. Any idea?
You shouldnt have any problem, the only thing you will need to check is wether your board is SATA I or SATA II and whether the HDD (which will be SATA II) cna be made to work on SATA I, (which normally means moving ajumper on the harddrive)
Thanks so much. I used Belarc Advisor to get most of the data, it doesn't tell me which SATA is onboard. I downloaded the manual and it doesn't show anything.
