Does the BIOS in the ECS L7S7A2 support drives bigger than 137GB? I've
bought a 160GB WD, and read here that my K7S5A won't support it, so I'm
thinking of a cheap upgrade to the L7S7A2. Thanks!

ECS K7S5A versions 1.1 through 5.0 with the latest BIOS support up to
250GB according to ECS support FAQ. A few persons have reported using
160GB and 200GB drives successfully. SIS 735 supports 48-bit LBA when
enabled by the BIOS.

Regards,

Tim
