Inspiron 1525 HD height

I want to replace the 230GB  hard drive in my old Inspiron 1525 with a 1TB drive and would like to know if a drive with a height of 9.5mm will fit in the drive bay or do I need a drive with a 7mm height?

9.5 will fit in these -- while a 1T should work, this is a very old system -- and 1T drives didn't exist when it was built.

True, but wouldn't partitioning take care of any problems due to the BIOS?
