1 Please CC me directly as I am offlist...
3 I have been tempted to put a laptop IDE hard drive in my multia...but I
4 was concerned about 2 issues:
6 1) I remember a while back when there was a limit to the size of a drive
7 a bios could see, and effectively use. Does such a limit exist on the
8 onboard controller, and if so, what is it?
10 2) What cable/connector would be required to make this work?
12 Thanks in advance,
13 Ted
