Can i make my 80GB hard drive to 100GB? 80GB 7200rpm SATA SAMSUNG

This is not possible, 80Gb is 80Gb and 100gb is 100gb, but I am afraid, even if you like to replace, you'll not be able to get 100gb since it's no a standard Hard disk capacity. If you are trying to upgrade, then you can find 120gb, 160gb, 250gb, 320gb etc... Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

How big of ata hdd is compatible with this, old hdd wore out


As far as i know the maximum capacity drive is a 160GB drive.

The most common drives shipped with that model is usually 40GB.

If you update the BIOS it could take a larger drive.

I have Intel 810e PIII 1 GHz 512 Mb Ram 20 GB HDD. OS Win ME I want to add secondary HDD. Which one should I preferr 80GB / 120GB / 160GB. and will install new OS say Win XP or linux in Secondary Hdd....

160gb - but ensure the bios is up to date and check the motherboard manual as that will or should explain about maximum capacity of hard drives but am sure it should be fine.

If it is not and does not detect all of it you can partition the partitions into smaller amounts ie 80 gb partitions each ?

Can I use a SATA2 HDD for P5GL MX?

just like usb1 and 2, the sata2 harddrive will simply clock down to match the speeds of its port. the connections for both types are identical so there are no possibilities of problems...other then the motherboard saying "nope i cant read that", which most likely wont happen.
ohyeah...ram does the same thing too.
but honestly, if you're using a mobo thats only sata1 and you've got the dough for a new 1tb harddrive, you should consider upgrading your motherboard first...much better money spent

Computer won't load Windows

1. What the motherboard you had been using
2. Whats the HDD

Check that your motherboard supports the higher HDD
Upto 80GB HDD Windows can load the XP with servicepack 1
But after 80GB HDD supports the WIN XP with service pack 2 CD only.  Try to install with the winxp having above sp1.

Let me know if your problem is solved and rate me as FIXYA!

Sure, without any problem, you can even connect both as you have 2 IDE port, I'd recommend to connect each of them on its own port as master and your cd rom as slave.
