Obviously, if you just want to increase the size of your HDD without
any heavy duty mods, you can upgrade to 120, 250, or 320 gb HDDs.
You can use a DOS app called hddhackr
, or you can Team Xecuter's X360USB
with hdd firmware modification support installed to upgrade your drive.
The X360USB would be the easiest way to go since you don't have install DOS, and fidgit around with SATA ports on the motherboard. Cost you $60 for the tool plus the hdd size you want to buy.
Here are the drives that hddhackr will work with:
- WD Scorpio Series BEVS/BEAS
- WD Scorpio Blue Series BEVS/BEVT
- WD Scorpio Black Series BEKT/BJKT
- WD VelociRaptor Series
But hddhackr is free
, and its found HERE
The only drawbacks are:
HDDHackr is made only for real MS-DOS, not for windows command prompt or even windows XP/Vista/7
You have plug in the hdd you want to mod into the motherboard's SATA port on a desktop PC.
The only file you need to find on your own is the hddss.bin
file of the drive size you want, i.e. 120, 250, or 320. You won't find it here...This post has been edited by bamarquez226: Jan 9 2012, 08:21 PM
