hardrive
 
These old computers.Can you put a 8gb hardrive in them.I figure a 16 would be too much.You then need another hardisk controller that supports LBA. Also if you cant get into bios in these old computers even though you have the right code what else can you do

Most hard drives can be set to be 32Gb. I find myself doing that with client's computers from time to time if bigger sizes will not detect.
