: I just happened to install a 15 GB IBM Deskstar HDD on an IBM PC 300GL (6282-75U), but the BIOS does not recognize but 8.4GB. It seems that it does not support LBA. I have the latest BIOS update from IBM website, but it still does not work. Does anyone know how to make the BIOS support LBA (if this is possible)?

: Please email me ( if you have the solution.

: Thank you!

If the latest BIOS update from IBM does not support larger HDDs then the quickest, safest way to get large HDD support is to use an ATA/66 card; it will support HDDs up to about 128 GB.

Good Luck,
