Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. I have an MSI MS-7043 motherboard with AMIBIOS V3.31a. What's the biggest SATA HD I can install?
Your Motherboard is SATA 1.0 - If you select a newer 2.0 drive you will have to place the 1.5gb jumper on the drive to be visible to the bios and operate at 1.5 instead of 3.0 gbs - http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=ms-7043&table=download
this is the link to the manual and drivers for your mobo
The other option is to purchase an updated SATA 2.0 controller card and then you can support all the new size HD's - here is the link to one such card for $29.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2254079&CatId=1455 - if you are not ready to update the mobo, then this is a great solutions
