Replaced HD 40GB with a WD IDE 320 Gb

I cannot get it partioned (anny size)

is this a HD problem or is it limited by motherboard (HP 085Ch) or Bios ans is the (new) HD ok?

(sometimes I see errors that refer to head symetry)

I have a HP Compaq d530 SFF with a 40 G hard drive. I want to upgrade to a hard drive of at least 80 G. Am I able to do this? Like to know also how much more RAM can I add I have 1.5 GBs now..


You can get a maximum of 4GB of ram.
Yes you can also upgrade your drive, probably to a lot larger than 80.

The following is a link to the manual that you can download, in PDF format, that has information on upgrading/adding both memory and hard disks for the HP d530 SFF. It has both diagrams and instructions.

Go to the "Hardware Upgrades" section.

1801 micro code update error


You need to update your Intel processor microcode patch. This can be updated independently of the system BIOS. The latest microcode update for the d530 786B2:
http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/hpcpqdt/us/download/21270.html

If you use this and still see the POST error message, please go into F10 Setup under System Properties and report the detailed description, including the stepping, of the processor in your system.
