Sun Fire V100 - Max IDE disk size?

  2. Don't count on more than 127 GB unless you find it written somewhere in
    Sun's documentation. It's a limitation built in to Sun's IDE
    controllers and AFAIK, it applies to ALL Sun IDE.

  3. No, it applies to all Sun IDE controllers released before PC system
    makers started doing ATA-6 that supported more than 127GB drives.
    Just like in the PC world.

    But, the V100 is an older system that was pre ATA-6, so yes, it won't
    support drives bigger.
