For the HP Pavilion PC Model 6350, which uses an SiS 5598 chipset on the motherboard, you should be able to use any sized hard drive that is PIO, DMA or Ultra DMA/33 compatible.

If there were problems with a very large hard drive, HP has a BIOS update at:

This update could possibly correct any problems.
