HD larger than 137GB

The issue:
The solution: (click on your operating system)

What operating system is on each computer?
What is the model name of the HD?

If you need to update your BIOS and Drivers, go to your motherboard's website or the computer mfg's website.

Even if you can't update the BIOS on the old computer's motherboard, you should be able to install a compatible HD controller card.
