Max hard drive limit on an Early 2006 iMac
I'm going to rebuild a relative's Early 2006 iMac, currently with a Core Duo processor.
First thing - upping the storage capability. I come from the Windows world (no offense) and older machines have a BIOS limit (like 8.4 GB for real old machines, 137 GB, etc), where the BIOS could only see a certain amount of drive space, but the OS would create 2 partitions.
I am aware that Mac doesn't have BIOS, but I've heard everything under the sun about the capacity that can be used, like 2 TB, 750 GB, then 2.2 TB, then really anything.
I was shooting for 3 TB - is that doable with this machine, or am I going to hit a HDD limit?
Also, side question somewhat related - the replacement processor (T7600) - is Socket M, correct?
Is this a good question?
