Smallest / Largest Hard Disk

So, it appears that my IBM ThinkPad HD is failing and I need to replace it.

I would like to check and see what would be the minimum and maximum size that is supported by AROS, or maybe what would be the optimal size HD.

I thought there was a note somewhere in the instructions - but I cannot find it now.

Thank you.

I don't think there's a size that's too big for AROS to use, but each partition has a maximum size of 127GB. As for a minimum, Icaros needs around 8GB for a full installation to succeed.

Turns out that for the Thinkpad the largest HD that I am able to locate is 320MB. So that should do it.
