I ordered a new 120gb ide hdd off ebay and the seller instead sent me a used 250gb ide hdd (this model: https://www.amazon.com/Hitachi-HCP725025GLAT8 … B/dp/B00QJAA1X6). I didn't realize it was 250gb when I installed windows 98se and set up my drivers.
Everything is working OK so far. I just did a double take when I opened my computer and saw a 230 gb C: drive. It's the only partition.
Everything I've read suggests that this shouldn't be working. My only other ide/<128gb drive currently is used in another retro system, and I'm reluctant to wipe it and use it for the new retro system if I don't have to (even though that system is basically decommissioned atm).
Does anyone know what type of limitations or headaches I'm likely to run into if I just keep this 250gb, one partition install going? I'm likely to want to run some DOS games on it- not many, but some (it's a socket a athlon 1800, SiS735, voodoo5, sblive! build focused on glide and windows 95/98 adventure/fmv games).
Thanks for any insights!
