Hi all, I have an Inspiron 700m and the hard drive finally died. I saw a few posts on what type of hard drive to get, but does anyone know what's the maximum size I can use?

If it's PATA then you've probably have a BIOS limitation of 138gigs. You can still install a drive larger than this as long it's partitioned so that the second OS starts before this limit. For example, let's say you've got a 150gig drive, if you make the first partition 100gigs and the second 50gigs you can make them both bootable.
I hope this helps,
