Question about EliteGroup PT800CE-A Motherboard
I am looking at installing a bigger HDD and thinking i might move away from IDE or Eide and go the way of the SATA or Serial drive
my question is
What is the Maxim drive capacity would windows Xp Pro and the Elite Group PT800CE-A board will support up to?
because the new drives are already on the market from 350 G/b to 1 T/b
thank you for any input to this question.

On the net there are systems usig the EliteGroup (ECS) PT800CE-A with a 300GB HDD (here). If you are running windows xp with SP1 or greater, your technical limitation is 2.2TB (2200GB) due to the addressing limitatons in the 32 bit Opeating system. If you are using Windows XP 64Bit Edition, you have a maximum theoretical size of 144PB (144000TB) though this may not be achievable.
The BIOS may not be able to address quite this much space, and the IDE or SATA controller may have its own Addressing Limitation. The newer your hardware is, the less likely you are to have issues with large sized drivers.
