Dell Optiplex 745 - support for 2 TB hard drives

I have a Dell Optiplex 745 and I would like to install a couple of 2 TB SATA hard drives.

Does anyone know if the BIOS will support that installation?

Thanks in advance.

  1. This model came out before support for drives over 2TB was common, but it has had several updates since then. While the bios updates do not specifically say, I recommend updating to the latest bios version first: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDetails/DriverFileFormats?DriverId=R261239&FileId=2731112870
  2. I DID read the manual and I talked to Dell via web chat but the best I can come up with from them is a max recommended drive size of 750 Gb.

    All I'm trying to find out is whether someone here has experience with a similar situation before I invest several hundred dollars in a couple of 2 TB drives.
  3. Yes, the latest BIOS would be a given.

    I went thru the changes for each version of the BIOS and the only mention of HD support I could find mentioned support for 500 Gb hard drives.
  4. Anybody?

    I'm happy to report that the 2 TB drives ARE recognized by the system.
