    System Drive Size
    Hi, I tried searching but nothing turned up.

    Somebody once told me that it was not recommended to have a system drive larger than 160 Gb. Is this true?

    Specific question:

    Power Mac G5 Dual 2.0 Ghz (Late 2005), running Tiger.

    I have a 160 Gb system drive and a 320 Gb second drive. Thinking of switching the 320 Gb drive to be the system drive and getting a 500 Gb second drive. Not thinking about upgrading to Leopard anytime soon.

    Will this give me any unwanted trouble?

    thanks for your help!
    I drank what?

    Nope, should work just fine. Size matters not.

    My boot drive on my Quad is a 500Gb drive with 2 partitions (250Gb each). Works fine.
