Size does matter! :D

Older BIOS's do not recognize more than 8.2(?)GB. If you get a larger, newer HDD, make sure to download a DDO (dynamic drive overlay) utility. This software overrides the Windows fdisk utility and allows larger partitions to be recognised not by the BIOS, but by the Operating System.
