    Does MK77MII support LBA 48-bit mode for hard drives > 137GB? I need to use
    a 200GB drive.

    I am running WinXP Home SP1 and have applied patch for ATAPI.sys
    v5.1.2600.1135 so I think the OS is capable of supporting it.

    I have read that somehow the LBA 48-bit mode is tied to ATA133. In my case,
    the motherboard supports ATA133 but I will have an 20GB ATA100 drive (Win XP
    boot) on the same IDE channel as the 200GB ATA133 drive (data storage). I
    understand that this will cause both drives to only operate at ATA100 speed,
    but would this also stop me from being able to use the 48-bit LBA capability
    (if MK77MII has that capability)?
