\015 Which is the maximum HDD size supported by BIOS in Acer TravelMate 508DX ?\015

Answers :

Windows 98 has a max of 64GB and windows 98SE 137GB. (That one came with Win98, right?). A decent 20GB should do if you're using still windows 98. Your BIOS should have a list of drives to choose from but it should be alot more than the 4.8GB drive that comes with the laptop.
