I am going to buy a used HP DV6700 Notebook and I want to buy a Solid State Hard Drive for it. How can I find out which ones will work with the existing Mother Board connection and BIOS.

I realize that I will have to reinstall the OS

I am Probably going to install XP Pro and/or Fedora

    How can I be sure that my bios and OS will recognize this?

    Since the format is Sata and your current hard drive probably has a higher capacity then the current solid state drives ,the system should pick it up with no problems.
    Up to 200gb should be no problem.

    sorry I missed your last question, I agree with f-king. Your current drive would exceed the space the ssd, your bios can already handle something beigger so you should not have any problems.

    Just make sure that it's a  2.5" drive with the SATA interface.
