If I get a 200gig seagate(on sale at bestbuy) should I use the Large F: bios or add the G: partition? And, can you conrtol the size on the G: partition? If I wanted to break it up to like 100gigs on f: and 100gigs on g:? I'm worried about corrupt data and slowdown problems.

Just let it default itself to 137GB on F: and the rest goes to G:. Then u won't have corruption as long as your BIOS has LB48 (im pretty sure that's what it's called rolleyes.gif tongue.gif ) support.

Peace,

It is more converient to use just F: partition. It will be fine for HD up to around 250GB (corruption will only happen with a single partition over 256GB).
I have a 250GB with just F:.
I suggest you use the X2-4981.06 bios.
