Gigabyte Mobo & 250GB HDD?

#1
hi all

i'm thinking of adding a 2nd hard drive to my system. i'm looking @ getting a 250GB WD one - just normal ATA100, not SATA...

atm i have a GA-8I848E-L (gigabyte motherboard) and i'm not sure if my WinXP-SP2 will actually be able to 'see' all the 250GB of the hard drive cos i've read something about the bios needing to be 46-bit LAC or something? is anybody able to shed some light on this please?

thanks in advance

It should work ok. The ~150 gig limitation was in Windows not bios and one of the SP1 updates fixed it. SP2 will support the 250 gig drive.
