I would like to install 250gb and partition it 130/120. This question probably belongs in the "Storage" section. You'll have no problem putting a 250GB HDD in that "Inspiron 5100" I had a 5150 before Dell replaced it with a 6400, after it almost caught on fire... I go with WD's myself, and believe I had a 160GB in it at the time. Good Luck, Dagra ulysses35 a b à CPUs February 18, 2010 10:42:25 PM The only real issue = Hard drive type SATA or IDE.
