Default Core Hardware Quiz #5

Most of you are probably going to get this right away, but oh well..

An IDE hard drive interface on a system board that does not contain an enhanced BIOS has a maximum disk partition size of _____.



Answer: A - 528MB

Explanation: A BIOS without "Large Drive Support" can only see the first 528MB of an IDE drive.


***NOTE***
Please DO NOT post the answer in this thread as other users may wish to have the same opportunity to answer the question. The poll will be closed in 2 days and the answer may be discussed after the poll has been closed.

Any post containing any answer (correct or incorrect) or a hint toward the answer will be removed.


Thanks!

-Mike
