I have a hard drive enclosure that was made by Sabrent that is currently not in use. I purchased it earlier this year from Amazon.com (See http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001PHLMAE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 [Date accessed: 03-14-2015 @ 7:36 PM]). I have a 4TB SATA Internal Hard drive that is currently not in use. I purchased it earlier this year from Amazon.com (See http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LO3KMK0 [Date accessed: 03-14-2015 @ 7:38 PM]). My question to you is will this SATA Hard Drive, inside the hard drive enclosure, work with my Windows XP Operating system. I also have a 2 TB Hard Driving made by Western Digital somewhere in my house.

Please keep in mind that my motherboard model number is NF4UL-A9. I purchased it from this website earlier this year:

Biostar NF4UL-A9 Socket 939, AMD Motherboard

(Search engine used: Ebay.com)

The motherboard above was made on or around 2004. I have 4GB (however, it only shows 3.2 GB because it is 32-bit) of RAM installed on that motherboard.

In general, I have two computers. I have the NF4UL-A9 desktop. In addition, I have a HP Pavillion Laptop (Model Number dv7-6b32us) that I purchased in December 2011. It has Windows 7 Ultimate Operating System.

The HP Pavilion dv7-6b32us (A1T56UA#ABA) laptop comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Did you also buy it on eBay?

You are correct. The HP Pavilion dv7-6b32 US comes with Windows 7 Home Premium by default. I also purchased the laptop on Ebay brand new. I was able to get Windows 7 Ultimate because I purchased a separate full version on disk. So now, instead of Windows 7 Home Premium, I have Windows 7 Ultimate.

Okay, that's good to know.

eBay is notorious for selling pirated Windows operating systems or computers that contain one.
