    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
