GA-5AX HDD size limitation

  evan 14:19 21 Nov 2004

I wish to increase the size of the hard disk on my system it is a GA-5AX motherboard with an AMD K6-2 500Mhz processor, the Bios is version 4.51PG dated 1984-1999. Is there a physical limit to the size of HDD I can fit to this system.

The old BIOS will not recognise drives over a certain size (in your case about 20G) but there is third party software that will overcome this.
