I am using a desktop, not a laptop.

Okay, the same concern still applies. If the new disk drive is the backup boot drive, it needs to be supported. If it is the same size and interface, it is probably okay.

Disk capacities are continually increasing, and interface standards change. It would be very annoying to find out that the BIOS doesn't support the replacement disk.
