Talking Big disks 4 EVO???


Hi,

Admitted, this may not be the very right spot to ask this, if so, oops...

Question

Quote:
What is the biggest hard disk a Compaq EVO D51s can handle?
I am in an argument about that, so, might as well ask the pro's ;-)

Tnx for a possible answer!

Wellness!!!

Hey & hi-there!

Well, it can _only_ handle 80Gb's worth of HD, according to Compaq.

The BIOS cannot be upgraded to handle more...

So...the lucky answer is : 80Gb!!
