I know Windows 7 can't handle it but Mavericks?
No one's using hard drive this big?
The product page mentioned PC but not Mac.
"The Archive HDD 8TB SATA III Hard Drive (OEM) from Seagate is a 3.5" internal drive with a 8.0TB storage capacity. The drive is designed for 24 × 7 workloads of 180TB per year. Free Seagate DiskWizard software allows you to install the hard drives in Windows without UEFI BIOS. With Seagate AcuTrac servo technology, it delivers dependable performance. This drive is suitable for cost-effective online archiving, object storage, Big Data cold storage, cloud active archive, and Web-scale archiving."
A Mac has UEFI BIOS it should work assuming it has the proper holes for mounting it without extra measures.
Which Mac are you planning to use that 8TB hard drive? I wouldn't use it in anything other than a cMacPro.
(The mounting holes are just a physical detail, and wouldn't affect real-world use.)
External enclosure would be a better choice, but you would want to find out if the interface card inside the enclosure will support it.
Mac mini, but I'll install it in external case (4 drives bay) which is just a rack that will stick the drive in place by SATAIII and power port. I guess if those two are in the same place it would be fine. Thanks for the info.
Are you referring to Mavericks (2012 Mac mini)?
