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.

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.

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.
