Re: HDD question for XPS 8700...

Both of these hard drive should work but be aware that you will have to partition them as GPT vs MBR to access all 4 TB. In addition, Windows can only boot from GPT on UEFI-based computers running 64-bit versions of Windows 10, 8, 7, and Vista. All versions of Windows 10, 8, 7, and Vista can read GPT drives and use them for data—they just can’t boot from them without UEFI. If you don't meet these conditions, you will be limited to 2 TB.
