Hi,
ich have a Satellite Pro 2100 with a harddrive capacity of 40GB. Now I want wo upgrate it with a 100GB or 120GB HDD. Is it supported? Where is the upper limit of supported capacity? Is there something I have to look out? Are there special attributes which I have to look for?

forward thanks for your support

Hi

It's very improbable that the 100 or 120GB HDD will work.
I assume the BIOS will not recognize these HDDs.
I don't found any officials documents about the supported HDDs but I think the 60GB HDD is biggest HDD which would works on the Satellite Pro 2100.

Hi

I agree with Jimi. The newest notebooks have the HDDs with this capacity. In my opinion you should buy 60GB and I believe that there should not be any problem and the BIOS will recognize the whole capacity.

In my opinion 80GB is a “realistic border area” and I am pretty sure that all HDDs with capacity from 80 or even 60 GB will not be recognized properly.
