|I've almost maxed out my existing SATA HDD & want to replace it with a bigger drive. My system is a little older & I am worried about it not recognizing a 1 to 2 TB drive. The mobo is a Tyan S2865ANRF Tomcat K8E. BIOS is Award 3.02. Running 32-bit Windows 7, so I think it best to stay UNDER 2 TB. Still, nowhere within the Tyan manual & website or the info I've read about the Award bios on the internet give any clue about how large a drive they would recognize. Award is not upgrading the BIOS any longer, as far as I can tell. Tyan responded to me that "S2865 is EOL. We don’t have any information to support this HDD issue" & referred me to the BIOS download webpage, which did not yield any clues.|
Anyone have any knowledge?
If you've ever used this board, how big SATA HDD were you able to run successfully?
For whatever it's worth, my current HDD is split into 4 partitions & the new one will also be.
