My 6Gb harddrive in my Dell Inspiron 3500 finally died.
I'm looking for a replacement drive (maybe a Hitachi TravelStar 60Gb
7200RPM) but and scared that this old machine and bios will not support a
large new harddrive.
I have upgraded the bios to PhoenixBios A14.
Will I be able to use a new and large 2.5" harddrive?
I'm running 2.6.x linux kernel.Bay-Wolf replied:
A 60GB hard drive will work in your system. Check out this link. Leduke30
states that he has used a 60GB hard drive in his 3500.
I use the IBM (Hitachi) 7K60 hard drive and I love it. I definitely noticed
the extra speed brought on by the 7200 RPM hard drive.
