Good Afternoon gang. I need some expert technical advice so here I come again, I am having a recurrence of a previous problem on my computer so rather than trying another bandaid I have decided to do a reformat and clean install of the OS. Since I will have to reinstall everything I have decided to add another Larger internal HD. I'm considering the 160GB Western Digital Caviar SE ATA 8MB Cache 7200 rpm. My Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver) has the Ultra ATA/66 hard drive bus. Will the aforementioned HD work if it is Fast 7200 RPM spindle speed and EIDE (Ultra ATA/100) I beleive I read somewhere the 2001 G4 Quicksilver would only acknowledge up to 120 MB in a HD, hence the 160
Thanks in advance for your assistance
