Re: Maximum hard disk support
This hard drive size will work with your motherboard but the problem is the size will be detected only up to 130 GB or less, so if you will be using that size of hard drive you will just waste it.. so better use a 120 GB of hard drive or upgrade your motherboard so you can use a 250 GB.....

Hi prabhatkumar, your Intel motherboard's bios will see the drive. The question is will windows?
Do not use windows to setup the hard disk drive. Download the free bootable software for a floppy disk from the manufacture's web site. Boot the system to the floppy & format the drive. You'll be able to set the cluster size (Like windows would do) but the software from the manufacture is far better than windows. Any version of windows XP will see your total drive size. Just make sure the drive is seen while in the bios. (If it will be the primary drive make sure it is listed in the boot order).
Good day prabhatkumar!
Run into any issues just drop me a note.
Hello all. I have the same issue. My MB is 845G [P4 2.4 Ghz] and SATA harddisk I need to install is Seagate 250 GB Baracuda with 3.0Gb/s interface, I belive which makes this HD as SATA II. So for this motherboard should I prefer PCI cards which support SATA II over the supports SATA I [these are cheaper].
