That was one of the choices I was given when I bought my current desktop. I chose a Seagate instead, for no particular reason, so I can't speak from experience....

    No reason it shouldn't. That was one of the choices I was given when I
    bought my current desktop. I chose a Seagate instead, for no particular
    reason, so I can't speak from experience.

    Can anyone tell me in Ubuntu Linux will run on a WD SATA 160Mb drive?

    Thank You,

    I've installed the 64-bit version on a Seagate SATA 250GB drive. Just
    installed Mepis on a WD SATAII 320GB drive.

    The latest Ubuntu should install fine using an SATA HD interface. I
    just built a dual boot PC using an Intel 915 GEV motherboard -

    [url]http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/d915gev/index.htm[/url]

    and the HD you mentioned. the standard install, however, sets the
    default video refresh rate at 85 Hz which will toast some LCD monitors
    such as the Viewsonic VP171b. I never have gotten the audio to work
    even though Intel -

    [url]http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/ev/ev_drive.htm#debian[/url]

    has drivers for the Debian 'Sarge" release. I have yet to get ANY
    Linux distro to fully work with a late model motherboard. I would be
    interested in hearing the details from any and all who have.
