I am using K8S MX Motherboard with OS-Windows XP. but my hard disk is not working. i want to purchase a new 160gb IDE hard drive. please tell me if it supports 160gb hard drive or not


The specs for this motherboard say it has a Utra-DMA 133, and 2 SATA 3Gbs ports.
You can connect any IDE HD, and any SATA 3 or lower HD. These standards are backwards compatible. When it comes to size, there is a 2TB MBR limit.
I would skip IDE and go directly with a SATA 3 drive.

Installing a new larger hard drive, and it will not accept it?


Wait a minute! Hold the phone!

HOW, are you trying to install this 320GB harddrive?

You cannot just grab a fresh, new harddrive, and put it in. There's no Operating System on it. It's on the 160GB harddrive.
(Windows XP?)

Not trying to 'sound' condescending, but I do not see anything to support that you know what you are doing.

If you are using a Western Digital 160GB IDE harddrive, you have a motherboard, and BIOS, that is past the size limitation for an IDE harddrive.
The size limitation was 137GB for motherboards, (BIOS program, actually), that had this limitation.

Size limitation isn't your problem.

Plus, LEAVE BIOS ALONE, as far as upgrading.
Why?

A) Power goes out while you are upgrading, and when asked, you do not save a copy of the original BIOS program, you can take your motherboard out, and use it for a Frisbee.

B) IF, there was a BIOS upgrade, AND it is NOT compatible, AND when asked you do not save a copy of the original BIOS program, you can take your motherboard out, and use it for a Frisbee.

Also, if it IS an IDE harddrive, and the old 160GB is an IDE harddrive, you cannot put both harddrives on that flat ribbon cable, AND use the 320GB as a Primary harddrive.

Want to use the 320GB as a Primary harddrive, (Master), and the 160GB as a Secondary harddrive? (Slave) There is a proper procedure.

No, I'm wrong? You have a fresh, new GENUINE copy of Windows, and are going to install it on this 320GB?
[Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer ]

I hope it is Windows XP, (Home or Pro)
Why?
Because drivers are not be available for Windows Vista (Yecch!), or Windows 7.

What are drivers?
Small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to communicate with a device.
Windows XP and Windows 7, are just two examples of an O/S.
Harddrive, motherboard chipset, optical drive, (CD/DVD drive), audio (Sound), etc., are Devices.

Winfast is no longer in operation. No help from them.
(The motherboard manufacturer that made the motherboard for eMachines/Gateway. Confusing? Yes, I know.
eMachines sold out to Gateway. Guess what? Gateway SOLD OUT to Acer. Isn't this fun(?)


The motherboard is a Gateway MCP61SM2MA. Part number Gateway 4006232R.

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006232R/4006232Rnv.shtml

1) Has one Parallel ATA connector on the motherboard.

[PATA. Term is also known as IDE. Just to be more confusing, it is also known as EIDE. Enhanced IDE brought out by Western Digital, back in the day. The reason PATA is used, is to help distinguish it from SATA.
Serial ATA. This will help you understand,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA ]

On the main Gateway support page I linked above, click on ->
Product Views.
In the list click on the blue -> Parallel ATA IDE connector.

2) The motherboard also has two SATA connectors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

On the Hardware Details list, click on the blue -> U - SATA connectors

Do not know if it is a PATA harddrive, (320GB), or a SATA harddrive?
Look at the label. Example on WD 160GB might be WD1600BEVT.
What is it on the 320GB?

Blank, new 320GB WD harddrive? BIOS isn't going to recognize it.
Why?
It hasn't been formatted.
WD does have a software tool to do this. Do I recommend this for a beginner? NO.

Better to install the 320GB in an economical external enclosure, and plug the USB cable from the enclosure into any available USB port on your computer.
Now you have a 160GB harddrive with WinXP on it, and 320GB's of extra storage.

Example (IMHO) of an economical external enclosure,
