Windows 10: Hard drives and Motherboard Compatibility
Hard drives and Motherboard Compatibility
I have an Asus Z170M-E D3 and a Hardware compatibility list that I downloaded from Asus.com. My 3TB WD EZRZ isn't on that list. Does that mean I can't or shouldn't use it?
Very possibly, have heard of issues with older or slightly older BIOSes not supporting 3TB and larger drives. You can only give it a try or maybe check with ASUS for a BIOS update.
You can always try it, but if it's not on your list, I wouldn't recommend it.
If it's not on the list, it means that Asus hasn't tested it with the board. That is pretty much meaningless for standard SATA drives; Asus doesn't test most of the drives on the market.
However, there are some WD60 drives on the compatibility list. These are 6GB drives. Your 3GB drive will work just fine.
My Asus MB (M4A89GTD PRO/USB3) is about 5 years old. I have successfully upgraded from Win 7 Pro to Win 10. However, running on Win 10 my PC frequently locks up and has to be re-booted. As a result I down-graded to Win 7 and now all is ok. ASUS...
I have an older graphics card, GeForce 9500gt, and I would like to find out if it will be compatible to a newer motherboard, Asus A88XM-A. I have been searching for a list that would let me just compare the two, but can't find too much information...
I have a 2 month old hard drive that failed on my desktop PC, taking My Documents with 7 years worth of data. I had just moved the folder to the new drive and hadn't gotten a chance to backup yet.
I'm trying to check Recycle bins...
Is there an application that will check the compatibility of all existing hardware and software in my Win 7 Home PC before I begin an upgrade to Win 10?
Does anyone here have 2 HDDs or 2 SSDs that they use one for the soul purpose of the OS and use the other for installing software? I'm highly considering that. Is that possible in Win10?
