I have a Gateway model MFATXPNT nmz 500se ... serial 0028099580

Does anyone know if there is a hard drive (i.e. internal HD) size limit? Would like to upgrade to the largest internal drive possible.

My OS is XP with SP2

A socket7 system with XP?

Ok, if it is time to upgrade, better put the money towards a new system alltogether.

The maximum you can fit will be a 120GB disk. Anything else is above the absolute maximum 128GB per disk for this systemboard.

Do not assume anything
