Can anyone tell me if there is a maximum size of disk that this laptop supports? The original SATA 40GB disk failed and I've bought a new 320GB disk. When I try to install Windows XP Home from the original recovery disks, it tells me that it can't find any hard disks. My thinking is that this is because either:
a) The laptop only supports disks up to a certain size.
b) The install disks don't support SATA (as in this thread viewtopic.php?f=93&t=42295&p=136477&hilit=v2030#p136477)
Does anyone know what the answer is?
To tell the truth, I haven't looked on the recovery disk to see if the SATA drivers are there. Am I meant to install these manually or should the install pick up the disk automatically?
