Solved I have an Amilo 1437g and the hard drive is no more.

Specs: Linux Debian Wheezy, 2G
I have recently read about difficulties with the Amilo 1437g laptop Bios not recognising the hdd drive due to change in SATA ype. The machine has 2.57 V1.10 bios which is the last on the Fujitsu site.

Will I have an issue with a 1TB WD SATA 2 drive I have installed?
The Bios doesn't recognise it but Debian is happy to partition it and install.
Seems to work in the OS but have not done any serious activity on it yet.
The drive only cost 65 quid so seemed a good buy.
Cheers

Should be fine if it's already working okay. Problem might arise with drive detection if you ever try to install Windows on it,

But apart from that, any problem with drive detection on Linux would have happened by now, you wouldn't have been able to partition it or install Linux on it.

Debian seems fine. mint 16 seemed to have an occaional click which was why i was worried. However debian created a smaller boot partition.
Thanks for the reply
. Shame about the limited BIOS versions though
