correct, it's because the IDE controller used, it will allow 128GB max I
posted this info years ago i forgot the exact detail but is due the size
of the HW addressing controller, it will allow up to 128GB so it's just
a physical limitation... but what you can do it get a supported
SCSI and then use a smal disk (18GB ide for the root disk and everything
else SCSI.. or even better a controller that support boot in the U10.
