Old laptop, new HDD

2 posts in this topic

Hello there. I've got this hdd samsung hm160hc for my dell latitude d500 with chipset intel 855gm and run these benchmarks. How does it look, is everything good?

Mainboard bios limits disk size to 28-bit lba and there's no fix from dell, so I decided to reset drive capacity to lba 234,441,648 or 120GB in samsung estool even though I could use all 160GB in xp sp3.

Any input is much appreciated, thanks!

Based off the HD tune benchmark(easiest to compare for older drives), it looks fine. You are even doing slightly better in benchmarks(though, probably not noticeable).
