Hi there,

maybe it is just a stupid question, but is there a way to find out whether a mainboard bios supports LBA48 or not? I mean is it sufficient to hook up a hard disk of 160 GB or more and see if it gets detected with the proper size? I am asking because I assume that FreeDOS relies on bios functions to access hard disks and if those do not support LBA48, FreeDOS cannot do anything about that, right?

Best regards,
