I'm looking for some advice on upgrading my MBWE which I use with XP (soon Win7). I would like to replace the 1Tb disk with a 2Tb one. I have the case open and don't see any physical problems.
Can I buy any brand of disk or does it have to be a WD? I prefer Samsung.
Is it as simple as swapping the disk then powering it up or do I need to change anything else to make it recognise increased size? (My Linux skills are extremely rusty!)
Is there a way I can attach old and new disks directly to my computer to copy data across more quickly? (I also have a Slug - NSLU2)
I understand that the existing disk is not Windows format. Would I need to format the new disk under Linux before I could use it?
Thanks in advance
