hendryjl Posted May 5, 2009 Share Posted May 5, 2009 Yes, yes, I know this drive is so ridiculously fast and sweet it exceeds the 150MB/s available to my poor old HP/Compaq nw8440 workstation's SATA-I interface, but would it be reasonable to assume that this drive complies with normal backward compatibility standards and that I _should_ be able to use it? I found a fantastic price on this drive and I'm wanting to have the best chance for success since the won't allow a refund if it doesn't. The drive I have in it now is a SATA-II drive (Seagate Momentus 7200.2 120GB), and I know the bios tricks you have to do to get the OS to install on SATA-II drives. BTW, if the answer is 'yes', I promise to report back on my install experience. Thanks in advance! -Jim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
