Hard disk support, How much? 250GB Or less than


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.

How much is the maximum capacity of hard disk in p4vmm2 motherboard


Motherboards do not have hard disks but you can attach hard disks to them. Most motherboards allow you to connect several hard disks of various sizes. Most home computers only have one hard disk.

Open your computer back up look for the hard disk(s).
The capacity of the hard disk is usually on its label.
If not, you can look it up by the manufacturer and model name on Google to determine the capacity.

Depending on the size of the disk, 1 or more GB of the total capacity will be inaccessable because it is used to format the disk. (e.g. Windows might only "see" 28GB of 30GB disk.)

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Hdd installation


The capacity that a motherboard can support is designated by the BIOS.... a few years ago when HDDs started to get big, there was an issue in supporting disks above 137GB as this exhausted the old HDD addressing system..(BIOS), to rectify this the BIOS code was re-written to support 48bit LBA (Logical block addresses) so as long as you have up to date BIOS for this motherboard, it should be alright.

you should be able to install any capacity available on IDE as long as you have updated the BIOS to the latest version (check the Giga byte website to download this)

If you wish to upgrade your PC further you can get a SATA/PATA adapter, or you can get a PCI SATA, IDE or SCSI controller card. Effectively there are very few limitations to the number of disks nowadays.
