I’m planning on buying a WD caviar blue 320GB HDD for an older pc of mine but I want to be sure it will work on that motherboard. It is an ASRock P4VT8+ with the VIA® PT800 + 8237 chipset. I know this chipset doesn’t support autonegotiation so I need to put the WD caviar in SATA-I mode. And I heard some rumors that the chipset has a maximum harddrive capacity. So I like to be sure it supports the WD cavair blue 320GB in SATA-I mode.
I’m hoping you can give me an good answer to that becourse WD support doesn’t answer at all.
