Can I put a 1 terabyte SATA hard drive in a PowerEdge 1800 server?

Service tag D65P2B1 (to reference initial system configuration)

This server runs 4 scsi 73 gig hard drives. It has 2 available SATA ports on the mainboard. We want to add a 1 TB hard drive to the SATA port.

Wondering if this machine has a gigabyte limit on how big hard drive the SATA ports will support?

You may have to update the BIOS, other than that, it should work.

For a server, you always want to stick to the approved hardware list to ensure reliability - servers are IMPORTANT to the business.  For a workstation it doesn't matter nearly as much.  That said, "support" can mean several things - most commonly, when a vendor uses the term it means that they will or won't help you with problems if something (supported vs. unsupported).  In reality, most people think of it as "it will work" or "it won't work" - whether or not the vendor provides help with it.
As per my know..first vendor qualify the product which they mentioned in product specs and then release the product...
