hi all,

I'm trying to set up a spare pc to donate to a neighbor for their kids to use for on-line home schooling.

The pc has the latest win10 x64 pro build 1909 OS.

It also has - 1 x 512kb Corsair SSD + 1Tb Seagate Barracuda HDD.

When I tried to connect the 4Tb Seagate to it I received a few different BSOD errors.

I had to disconnect the 4Tb drive and boot + repair using a USB boot flash drive = this fixed the BSOD's.

When I connect the drive to my other PC's they don't have any problems.

I even tried formatting and partitioning (creating 3 smaller partitions) the drive on the other PC's, but this didn't help at all = still got BSOD errors.

Any help would be appreciated as I've never come across this before.

regards

hi Caring1,

Thanks very much for the quick reply = that's what I had in the back of my mind, that it could have been the problem = max HDD size limitation.

cheers
