Question about ASUS Intel 440BX Chipset CUBX-L Motherboard
I have an ASUS-CUBX-L motherboard and i am currently planning to upgrade my hard disk, since my old HDD crashed. I doubt whether this mother board supports the 160 GB and 320 GB PATA IDEs (Seagate or Western Digital) available now. Can some one confirm me on this. If these hard disks are not compatible please let me know which is the highest one i can use. My busted hard disk was a Maxtor 80GB.
The size of the drive that will be detected can vary on a number of things: bios version, and OS.
They will both "physically" work, but the full capacity may not be "seen".
The 160 should work fine, but the 320 may only "show" as a 250 or 300.
My best advice is to flash the bios to the latest, and start with the 160. Install your OS, and connect the 320 as a slave after the OS install, and check its properties.
