T42 Hard drive Replacement

I'm asking this only because Lenovo does not display anything other than external hard drive upgrades to this model.  As long as the drive size is correct and the operating system supports it, is there any other restriction on upgrading my 60 GB drive to something larger?

 

Thanks,

 

Don

Re: T42 Hard drive Replacement

I would verify that your system BIOS supports LBA if you are planning on going to a drive larger than 149GB. Otherwise, you should be able to install one with no trouble at all.

 

I believe your machine uses an IDE (PATA-type) drive.
