You are probably right, but it made me think way back when a colleague and I bought a hardware controller with a big DEC mini-computer to run it. Hi Fred, I was surprised and a bit confused about your statement that MBR can only support 2.2TB partitions.Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns. I recently bought a new 3TB Seagate drive and, not knowing any better, formatted it with a single NTFS partition.
The Spider Platform was one of the first steps into the Fusion Technology that AMD has been talking about for a long time.
AMD admitted the presence of the erratum prior to the Phenom's public introduction, but the firm's initial statements gave the impression that the erratum affected only virtualization, which is a server-class application and an uncommon use for a desktop CPU.
In truth, the erratum can cause instability with desktop-style usage patterns, as well, and systems with Phenom 95 processors will have to be patched and suffer the accompanying performance penalty.
It's not my boot drive; it's an e SATA connected drive that I use for backups.
My windows Disk Management utility is claiming that it's a 2794.30 GB NTFS Primary Partition.
