Hard Drive Question.

Hey, Quickie here,
I have a A-Bit KT7 Motherboard and I can't find manual.
Do you think it will recognize an 80GB hard Drive? (And In one Drive, No Partions).
Running Win98SE...

  2. Kt7.... early KT133 chipset.
    yep. shouldnt have too many problems.

    win98SE however... yuk... FAT32.
    a single 80Gb partition really is too large. the cluster sizes are going to be huge.
    if i were using fat32 i would split it into 2.

  5. Still too expensive, plus I dont know aout the compability.
  6. its compatible... i put a copy on a friends computer which was a duron 850 on a gigabyte kt133 mobo.

    just make sure you also put on the service pack 2, via drivers and latest drivers for everything.

    oh well. you can do a 80gig drive with fat32, but you hae to live with huge 32 or 64k cluster sizes *ugh*

  7. Two words "backwards compatible",

    Some bios\OS's dont recognize large drves sometimes. So just check for bios updates.

    It seems that every time I reboot my wallet get smaller.
  8. Last Time I updated my BIOS my computer wouldnt boot up, because somethings messed up so it thinks that the fan is not spining (which it is) and shuts it off...
