While that might be a more likely scenario, it's not the one this time. According to Seagate's site, 10.5 and 10.6 support drives larger than 2.2 TB…

You're confusing two different (but related) issues.

Steven, do you really think I was confusing the 2 things? In the next sentence I said that the Seagate article said "that the Power Mac G5, MacPro, and iMac systems with the listed os versions support drives larger than 2.2 TB."

I've worked with these issues for quite a bit in the past, such as the 1.2 GB partition issue with ATA drives on many machines when OS X came out. I tested the issues while at Apple, and was one of the few giving feedback on the text that was included in the installer and related documentation of the first couple releases of OS X.

It is good to note. But since I included both the OS and HW requirements that were listed in the Seagate document, which I had to type in instead of copying and pasting, I would have thought you would have given me the benefit of the doubt.


(alas, my newer iMac was speced with a 500 gig HD and not a 1TB, so no free "replacement" for me)
