Hi:

Please, how can I know if this motherboard (HP AAHD2-HY Holly Motherboard) support this 4TB hdd (Seagate ST4000DM000)

There is any way to know is an specific motherboard support 4TB hdds?

I connected this particular hdd in a Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Type 10B4, but it didn't wake up, it only shows the Lenovo logo screen without any option to enter at BIOS or boot from USB.

Thank in advance

It should do. If it does not, there may be a BIOS update to do so, or the alternative is to get a PCI-e SATA add-on card that does (which will give you SATA3 too).

These people list something 4TB as being compatible:

I suspect the issue is with the power supply now being capable of giving enough oomph. What system is this board in and does that have a full-size power supply?
