Hey i wanted to know whether asus motherboard a8v vm supports 500GB sata hard disk as i already have a 250GB IDE hard disk connected to it... As it doesnt support 1 TB hard disk so wanted to be sure before buying this one
More aboutdoes asus support sata 500gb hard disk
If the disk is indeed IDE, then SATA hard disks are not compatible with that. You need to get an IDE hard disk to use there.
your motherboard does support both ide and sata drives. yes you can add that new sata drive and use both types at the same time.
