In a recent posting somebody mentioned that your BIOS or OS might reject a large HDD.My mobo is a MSI K7N2 Delta and I am using XP pro.How can I find out?
Well your mobo is fairly recent and XP has support for large drives.What hard drive you thinking of?
>160gigDo I take it you mean this was only a problem with older mobos?I have never found the MSI site particularly helpful.
click hereYes older BIOS and operating systems as well. XP can support HDD over 137GB. But you must have Service Pack 1 installed...You Mobo supports SATA drives and they can be 250GB.
MarvellousThanks for that Powerless
Your mobo supports Ultra ATA-133. Part of the specification of ATA-133 is support for IDE hdds larger than 137GB. BIOS should be no problem.OS - If you have SP1 installed, that's no problem either.
Support 2 serial ATA + 1 ATA133???
