When new, the max HD size was 1GB. Don't know if this link applies which limits the size (partition) to 8GB.

At the risk of asking the obvious, have you found a SCSI I/II 50-pin hard drive that's 12 GBs? Unfortunately, the Quadra can't use an IDE/EIDE hard drive, because it has no PCI slots for a controller card. What OS version are you running?

Tom, That article applies to G3 Macs that can run OSX natively:
- iMac 233 MHz
- iMac 266 MHz
- iMac 333 MHz
- Power Macintosh G3 Desktop
- Power Macintosh G3 Mini Tower
- Power Macintosh G3 All-In-One
- iBook (FireWire)
- PowerBook G3 Series
Wouldn't aply to a Quadra.
In OS 6 and part of OS7, there was a 2G limit on the size of the boot partition. Apple docs say the partition size increased to "massive" with about 7.5 but I have one old Mac with 7.6 that still required the 2G partition or it would not boot with an unpartitioned 4.3G drive.
Jeff's spot on--we can't be sure until Tec Puppy posts the exact OS version.iMac 27" Mid 2010 2.93G i7 Quad, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 4GB RAM; ATI5750 1G VRAM

The max size drive you could put in a 840av is or at least was a 4 GB drive. I had a Micropolis AV for one of mine. It was like $1,000. They came out with other drives but they were not supported by the scsi on board, you had to get extra NuBus cards...
