Re: Size of HDD for Compaq Evo300 Desktop
This depends on what the Bios recognises.
And which Types of Drive IDE Or SATA.
Depending on the setup, and whats already in there, you could Go 80-100 Gig Comfortably. Or use an external hard-drive, if more space is required.

hi, i believed there is no possible way of putting 2 internal HDD in 1 laptop, seems the area of the existing HDD inside is already limited and also crowded of some other parts...and its not designed for 2 HDD either. the best way for me to advice is upgrade the existing HDD to higher capacity from the existing " GB " to " T " or add up a big capacity 2.5 " pocket size external HDD.
I think the actual size of hard drive is unlimited, certainly Asrock make no claims that there is a maximum size. I would however, to be on the safe side, install only a 1TB drive. You could of course get a larger drive and partition it into smaller partitions, which should bypass any possible size restrictions
Your motherboard has two SATA connectors, this means you can use any capacity of drive, and also that you can use two drives. So your motherboard has no limit to the size of the hard disk, you can accommodate as large a hard drive as you want.
you can connect any size SATA HDD to your system. Depending upon the OS and drivers you may have to create logical drives to handle the capacity. If you decide on a large capacity HDD such as a 1TB drive, backup becomes an issue. You may want to keep your working drives to a manageable size and attach a backup hight capacity drive for backup.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Please rate this solution. Thanks.
yes the mother board supports SATA However if you connect large Disks to the SATA connectors they are recognized correctly with full size. So leave your 500g and less HDs on the IDE and the big ones on the SATA. you can check this link for the manual for more information ftp://ftp.chiligreen.com/Desktop/Manuals/manual_a_k8v-mx.pdf hope this helps .thanks and Godbless pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa
On the net there are systems usig the EliteGroup (ECS) PT800CE-A with a 300GB HDD (here). If you are running windows xp with SP1 or greater, your technical limitation is 2.2TB (2200GB) due to the addressing limitatons in the 32 bit Opeating system. If you are using Windows XP 64Bit Edition, you have a maximum theoretical size of 144PB (144000TB) though this may not be achievable.
The BIOS may not be able to address quite this much space, and the IDE or SATA controller may have its own Addressing Limitation. The newer your hardware is, the less likely you are to have issues with large sized drivers.
