I have a VAIO VGN120E Notebook which came with the Intel GM965 chipset + ICH8M. It also came with a Hitachi 160Gb HDD which I would like to update to a Western Digital 750Gb HDD.
Is there any hardware limitation for this chipset regarding to maximum HDD capacity? I mean, will this chipset work with a 750Gb HDD without problem?
Another issue is that the new HDD that I want has a SATA 3Gb/s interface while my old HDD has a 1,5Gb/s interface. Will this chipset work with a SATA 3Gb/s interface HDD?
Hope anyone can help me.
Thank you very much.
ICH8M supports SATA 3Gb/s even 3Gb/s drives would work if it didn't and upto 2TB capacity.
Thank you very much for your helpful answer.
