    I am looking to upgrade the hard drives that are on my two Xserve 1,1 and I would like to know if there is a maximum hard drive size that they would recognize. I am looking at 2TB hard drive to drop in to both of them.

    If someone would let me know if these would work I would appreciate it.

    Thanks
    Chris

    G5 Drive size

    IF it is a G5 2 tb will work.
    Use a Hitachi or seagate drive

    If they are SAS drives you'll be OK but the Xserve 1,1 is stuck at SATA 1.5GBs which means that later 6GBs drives probably won't work. Even some SATA 1.5 drives won't work, in my experience.
    I tried a couple of SSDs in mine with no joy. The maker, Kingston, said that there was no way to negiotiate the slower speed.
