finding an IDE hdd with LBA48 support - Mu. - 22.02.2020 22:15

I've gotten a 40GB 2.5" IDE drive to boot dreamshell and certain games just fine. Only problem is that it only works in LBA28 meaning the bootloader bios won't boot it without pressing start and iso loaders version 0.6.6 and 0.7.0 don't want to work.

Is there a guaranteed way to find a drive that will work in LBA48? the drive is from 2006 according to the date code so its not a matter of age. Should I just look for a bigger drive like 120+GB?
