Question about PC Desktops
SOURCE: My PC has XP Home
TO BE HONEST, I WOULD TRY TO ROLL BACK YOUR SYSTEM TO BEFORE YOU INSTALLED SP3, IF ALL WAS WORKING THEN, WHY BOTHER WITH SP3. I PERSONALLY DO NOT ACCEPT ANY UPDATES FROM MICROSOFT AS THEY ALWAYS CORRUPT SOMETHING AND MANY PROGRAMS DO NOT WORK. I'VE GOT SP2 AND I'VE NO INTENTIONS OF INSTALLING SP3 (IF IT AINT BROKE, DONT FIX IT)

SOURCE: How to install new hard drive
External drives have come a long way and run almost as fast as many internal drives. If your need for extra hard drive space is pretty much driven by the Microsoft Flight Simulator game, you could get by with using an external drive. A few things, though: Make sure your system is supporting USB 2.0 (it should be) and that the drive runs at least 5400rpm. External HDD's run off standard 120v AC power.
Otherwise, if you want to get an internal drive, you can certainly get another ATA-133 drive. But SATA is faster and your computer may support it. The D530 CMT (convertible mini-tower) definitely does. But there is also the D530 SFF (small form factor), and D530 USD (ultra slim desktop)--not sure if those are rigged for SATA support.
As for maximum hard disk size supported, that's up to the operating system (e.g. Windows XP vs. Vista). You likely won't need any bios updates because of a new hard drive installation. However, its not a bad idea to review the BIOS update release notes to see what they're addressing.
