In-Correct

I am reassembling a :apple: PowerBook G3 Bronze Keyboard. I think I have everything I need... :D

but I don't know if I have the correct hard drive. :confused: Will an 80gb :eek: hard drive work?? because I thought that they are only capable of 6gb hard drives, or is that the default controller for the Blue & White Power Macintosh Desktop??

And also am I correct in thinking that if this hard drive will work for this Bronze Keyboard, I will have to partition it for every OS I have on it. ?? Because the operating system has to be in the first 10gb of the volume, or the files might become "lost" and the operating system unusable??

So what is the maximum hard drive size, and should I partition??
Thank you and Have A Good Day.

It should have the 128gb limit

I have heard that is for each partition. It may be possible to have multiple partitions of a 120GB on it (I have never tried it).

According to the OWC website, the largest they sell for your coumputer is a 120.
