The good news is you can use whatever size hard drive you want the only thing the motherboard limits is how many hard drives you can hook up.

hope this helped
please rate well.

Mother board p4xp-x does not detect one tra byte hard

To installing a 1Tb hard drive inside your computer will not work because the BIOS configuration has a limit on the maximum hard drive it can support.
The only way you can use a 1Tb hard drive is to install it in an USB hard drive adapter case and then plug this adapter into the computer's USB port. The computer will see this as an external storage device.

ECS 945GCT-M/1333 HD Recognition

Hmmmm, that is very strange that the manufacturer would put the port on the motherboard and not provide support for it. Yo have set your BIOS properly, correct? ... and there is no issue with the drive being too large, correct?

What is the maximum size of hdd to used with abit kv7

Good day sir/maam, yes you can use a 1 TB HDD, get the SATA version depending on the bios but im not sure it be compatible with SATA1 on your motherboard, any new hard disk canor cant be read by any old motherboard, you may have problems with SATA versions, there are 3 versions, but the problem is the response of the hard disk. The rule of thumb, fast motherboards, for large hard disk, because it can access large amount of data very fast usually they are SATA3. So slow motherboards with large hard disk is kinda slow, you be bored. I suggest you stick on the recommended hard disk. If you want extra storage, get 3 hard disk and daisy chained them as master/slave.

Hi i have a dell dc550 motherboard and want to put a 1 TB hard drive on it can I ?? The computer is a optiplex 170L

Yes you can. If you are adding a second hard drive, don't forget that you will need to purchase an additional SATA cable.
If you are replacing your current hard drive, you shouldn't need any additional cables.
Download the hard disk drive's manufactures tools software to setup your SATA drive. Make sure the bios see's your 1TB drive listed. If it is going to run your operating system check the Boot section in your bios & make sure it is listed in the boot order.

The BIOS may not be able to support a hard drive of such a large capacity. Check the motherboard manufacture's WEB site to see what size hard disk the BIOS can support. There maybe a BIOS upgrade that will allow the motherboard to support larger hard disk capacity.
