Advent K1501
Western Digital 160GB
Serial ATA
Standard ATA/ATAPI 7
Transfer Mode SATA-150/SATA 150

I want to install a larger HDD 250 or 320 but I am uncertain of compatability can anyone direct me to the appropriate HDD that will fit my machine?

Short answer. Yes.

You will need a 2.5" SATA1 or SATA11 drive but the SATA11 drive will have to have a jumper to limit the speed to SATA1 standard. i.e. 150.

If you look at para 3.2 configuring the drive click here(Holliday)/100534376a.pdf you will find the jumper settings to limit it to 1.5 or SATA1.
