Fujitsu Amilo M3438G problem with HD 320Gb?

Postby julms » Sat Aug 16, 2008 6:52 pm

I installed the hard drive, but only detects 130Gb.Ni ubuntu or windows or in the bios.

Any idea?

Thank you

There is a limit in addressing at 128GB, pretty much like it was at 32GB in earlier times.
If you don't have the latest bios maybe an update will help, but I don't think so since the changelog doesn't mention any added support for bigger HDDs.

Most likely you will not be able to use more than 128GB with this notebook.

I have installed a western digital 250gb drive into my m3438g without any problems, using the latest official bios from the fujitsu website, which is 1.10c. I'm sure I could have put a 320g in there as well. My money is on a bios upgrade here.

If 250GB work, 320GB will work too.

I'm planning to upgrade the HDD on my M3438G to 320 GB/7200 RPM. I have a Hitatchi drive that I want to use but It won't boot.
Has anybody succedded in upgrading to HDD larger than 250 GB?

I have not yet updraded the BIOS.
