Use any hard disk with any BIOS.
Have you ever tried to install a new Harddisk
in your PC and found that the BIOS did not
support it? I was faced with that situation
lately. I got advice to buy a new BIOS or to
buy a special controller. All of that costs
$ and is a lot of hassle. The BIOS might not
be compatible with your Motherboard etc.
This the problem WITHOUT additional Hardware.
