Max HD size for MDD M8570
« on: June 08, 2021, 08:23:54 PM »
Does anybody know the max HD capacity for the PATA drives on the MDD M8570?  I am considering installing  large(r) SATA drives using a SATA-to-PATA interface board.  Running Tiger and dual booting to 9.2.2 on one machine and Leopard dual booting to 9.2.2 on the other machine.  I imagine either the mobo or the OS might have a limit below current multi-terrabyte drives.

i *think* all MDDs should have hicap on all 4 buses, but i would not be suprised if the dual 1.0 server is an exception.

try with something >160 - if it can see 160, it will also run up to 2TB, which is the OS limit.
