    Motherboard problem or something else?

    Rayc56

      Hi Everyone,

       

      Can anyone tell me if the D875PBZLK Motherboard will support a WD 1TB hdd?

      I am having trouble getting the Hard Drive to allow installation of windows XP.

      any assistance will be appreciated.

      cheers

      Ray

          Hello,

           

          It is very difficult to comment on this, as this is an old board which have reached its end of life a few years ago. I dont think that a one TB drive has been used by any users when the board was still under the support.

           

          I know that there was a server which uses the ICH5R same like the desktop board you are using.

          I cannot see any tested 1 tb drive in the list.

          But this does not mean that it may not work.

           

          I would imagine that you are using the Windows XP with the latest Service Pack integrated. If not, try to make new windows CD using Nlite with the latest SP.

           

          Have you tried a different OS CD or different Windows like Vista as a test?

           

          The drive is configured as IDE in the bios and native mode. Have you tried to set it as legacy?

           

          All the best,

           

          Kind Regards,

          Aryan.
