HP 14-r025tx: what is the maximum size of hard drive I can replace my default one? & other hard disk performance issue

My default hard disk is almost full and I plan to update. What is the maximum size that this model could overcome? Very well is 2-3 to?

Another question.

I replaced my optical drive to a box with a 250 GB SSD HARD drive inside. I installed my new operating system here, and makes the default boot drive. The default value of HARD drive that comes with the laptop is my backup drive. This is configured by okay?


Do I have to put my SSD on the default HARD drive space and put my 2 to/3 TB harddrive on the caddy for maximum performance?


1. in theory, you can get 2 TB or TB but 1 TB has better peformance.

2. you cannot boot from the caddy. My suggestion: use for normal Bay and 2 TB SSDS in the caddy. You both what you want.

3. as (2) above.

Kind regards.

    What is the maximum size of hard drive, which can be installed in a desktop pavilion d4790y?

    It would be a secondary drive, not the boot drive.

    The operating system is Vista Home Premium, 32-bit.  The version of the BIOS is 5.08.

    Are there any changes or upgrades that would allow an internal hard drive 3 TB to install?

    Here are the specifications and configurable options for your desktop HP Pavilion d4790y and here are the specifications of its card mother P5BW - THE (Basswood2). Based on the specifications and the age of the computer, I would expect you to use a hard drive 3 TB as a secondary drive on Windows Vista (DISPLACEMENT SP1 or SP2) and Windows 7. Formatted as MBR would require the drive to use with a minimum of two partitions. Formatted as GPT would require only a single partition. In no case will you be able to use the 3 TB as a boot device drive because your computer does not support a UEFI BIOS that allows booting from a GPT formatted disk. No changes or updated should be held.

  • What is the maximum size of HARD drive, I use in my dc7600 CMT

    I use a HP dc7600 CMT, which works well after the upgrade to a Samsung 128 GB SSD Intel Pentium D 3.4 GHz, 4 GB of RAM and an AMD Radeon HD 6450. I'm under Win 8.1 Pro x 64, with the most recent upgrade and have absolutely no problem. Now, I want to add a second internal HDD and I wonder what is the maximum size that I can go to. I can't go up to 2 TB, or am I limited to a lower number? 1 TB? 500 GB? 250 GB?

    Will be happy to help here, especially if he actually tried to apply in practice.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards


    In theory, you'd be limited to 2 TB.

    The biggest HARD drive I have ever installed in my dc7600 CMT was a 1 TB of HDD, so I can't confirm that a 2 TB drive will absolutely work.

  • Satellite Pro 4600 - what is the maximum size of HARD drive?

    My age Satellite Pro 4600 has a 20 GB HARD drive. These are now very difficult to obtain, does anyone know if superior capacy HDDs can be used and, if so, what is the maximum size of the HARD drive.

    (Despite his age that I always use the Satellite Pro for some jobs).

    Hello John

    Satellite Pro 4600 is old enough for laptop and it is not easy to find the exact info. The fact is that this laptop comes with 10 and 20 GB hard drives.
    My opinion is that you can use 30 or even 40 GB HDD. I think that 30 GB new HARD drive should be enough for your some jobs.

    What do you think?

  • Equium L20-197 - what is the maximum size of HARD drive

    Hi all

    I recently bought an Equium L20-197 and I thought to install a larger HARD drive.
    I wanted to know what the maximum size of HARD drive that can be installed on an Equium L20-197 (I guess it's 120 GB, as it is on the L20-187 but I'm not 100% sure)

    I have also been seaching for the IDE drives and found a list of sites who have PATA, ATA100 etc. are also the IDE drives? (I checked the wiki and articles all point Yes, but a little more confirmation would not hurt)

    I was also wondering if the HARD drive I install must be brand toshiba (or if it even makes a difference).

    Thanking you in advance for any help you can provide.


    Equium L20 is very similar to the Satellite L20.
    Search here in the forum for similar issues. If you want to use the advanced search option, you will find a few useful headings.

    I know, it's that you can use the 40 GB, 60 GB, 80 GB and 100 GB 2.5 IDE HARD drive supporting the UDMA100

  • What is the maximum size of external drive for iMac (2009)

    Y at - it a maximum size of external drive that can be used for the iMac (late 2009 model)?

    I believe that the greatest single external drive currently available is 6 TB, but I heard 8 of TB are coming or may even arrived. OS X does not have a capacity limitation on the HD that it can address.

    That being said, if you are looking for storage solutions consider something like:


  • Satellite L40 - what is the maximum size of HARD drive?

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L40, model number PSL4CL - 001 with 80 GB HDD (SATA) 00C. I need to buy a new bigger hard drive, but I don't know the maximum size that I can use my laptop?

    Can I get a new one with 500 GB or I shouldn't buy one more 250 or 320 GB?


    Theoretically, you can buy each HARD drive you want. Your laptop is equipped with a SATA interface for HARD disk and there is no limit of capacity as on the old IDE interface. So, a 500 GB model should work correctly on your laptop.

    If you buy a new one make sure that it s a portable 2.5 HARD drive with SATA interface. All that s! :)

    I hope I could help a bit.

  • Satellite 2400-103 - what is the maximum size of HARD drive?

    Hi all.
    New here.

    Nobody knows what the maximum hard disk size is for a Satellite 2400-103? This laptop has a 30GB HARD drive which is complete at the moment and I'm moving to a 160 GB unit.

    Used software - DiskCopy - clone Moose 30 GB of cloning to the new 160 GB drive. This creates a partition on the disk that is the same size as the original (about 28GB). If the new hard drive is installed on the laptop at this point, the laptop will be start OK. If I use a partition manager - Partition Magic - to resize the partition to the size of the new disc (about 150 GB) then the laptop does not start.

    Would it because there is a limit on the size of the hard disk supported by this laptop?
    If so, what is the limit?

    Thank you and best regards.



    Satellite 2400 is very old notebook, so I think it has a limitation of LBA 28 bits. This means that you can only use up to 128 GB of free space so the maximum capacity of the disc HARD would be 120 GB. So I think that's the reason why the computer laptop can-t start successfully with the 160 GB model.

    In your case I bring back the 160 GB model to the computer store and ask one another 120 GB one. It should work normally

    I would replace the drive ide 2.5 "on a Satellite S1900-100.
    What is the maximum capacity of hard disks in this laptop?


    As far as I know this laptop supports the ATA-5 interface and, therefore, it should be possible to use the 120 GB IDE HARD drive as ATA - 5 supports the 28-bit LBA

    But to be honest I didn t find details what size HARD drive max can be compatible

    I seems that you would have to test

  • What is the maximum size of HDD compatible on Satellite A300 PSAG4A-02M00M

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me the maximum size of hard drive that can handle a PSAG4A-02M00M and max running at 5400 RPM, (because I don't want it to be slower than that).

    And what specifications for disk replacement? (IDE, etc.)

    Thank you


    As far as I know the laptop supports the SATA HDD controller and you must use a SATA 2.5 HARD.

    You should be able to use any HDD SATA controller SATA HDD is not limited to any size. I think that the BIOS should also support a 320 GB HARD drive or more

    Hope this might help you

    The problem is that there is no official information on the maximum size of HARD drive on laptop series different. If we can only speculate on the supported formats.

    But I found it here in the forum:

    The user has updated the own M70 with the 160 GB drive HARD Toshiba MK1637GSX and it works.
    So maybe this info helps a bit.

  • What is the maximum size of the image (in pixels) a height that supports the Muse? I noticed that if the photo is too high, reduce the Muses. Thank you

    What is the maximum size of the image (in pixels) a height that supports the Muse? I noticed that if the photo is too high, reduce the Muses.

    Thank you

    If you place an image with a height or width greater than 2048 pixels - in Muse - Muse will scale the image down proportionately, limiting the larger size to 2048.

    However, if you want to use the picture to its original size, you can move the image to the desired size by dragging handles to resize, or by entering values for height and width in the strip control on top. After that, go to the active panel and locate the image, then right-click on this image in the active panel and choose "import of large size. Which would bring the image lost the original image information.

    Hope that gives you clarity on what you wanted to know.

    See you soon,.
