Re: harddrive replacement
That motherboard has a bios update to support drives of 40G and bigger.
Important to update the bios if the current one is older than that.
Once that is done, all you need to do is clone the existing drive
to the new drive using something like True Image. Best to do
that using what TI calls the rescue CD, after booting the CD.
The default is to make the old partitions fill the new drive,
but you can specify the new partition sizes manually too.
Easiest to have both the old and new drives on that one cable,
with the current second drive temporarily removed while you
clone the 9GB drive to the new drive. Then replace the 9GB
drive with the new drive and put the current second hard drive
back on that ribbon cable. It should boot the way it does now
with a lot more space on the new drive.
