    Hi folks,

    Hitachi is about to release a 1.5TB harddrive monster shortly.

    I am thinking about putting two of these into my PowerMac Quad G5.

    Now the question:

    Will these puppies work properly or is there a limitation regarding the disk size that can be addressed on a single HD?

    I know that some of the PC motherboards require a BIOS update in order to be able to address HDs of 1TB or more. Since my G5 is already more than 2.5 years old, I am not sure if it might make some trouble when putting in disks of that size.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S.: My Quicksilver back then was limited to 120GB drives as well... that's why I want to make sure before shelling out the money for two new HDs.
