    Which Windows version? (the size of the hard drive it can handle is related to the OS, not your hardware)

    Tranquility,

    Don't be so quick to shoot that duck! The MOBO's BIOS also dictates the max HD size that will be supported on his machine. He may get around that shortcoming with the manufacturer's program...EZBIOS if it is available to him.
