    I have just acquired a computer with an ECS Elitegroup L7VMM2 rev 1.1 motherboard with an AMD Duron 1800 CPU. I am currently running with a very small hard drive. What size hard drive is it able to support?

    Well the board looks new enough to support 48 bit LBA addressing so it should support drives beyond the older 127/137GB barrier.

    Also you will need XP SP2 to use more than 137G hard drive

    Yeah, I looked at the specs and the manual at the ECS website, but neither mentioned 48 bit support but the latest BIOS updates are from 2003 and 48 bit addressing was widely supported at that time.
