While NTFS is limited to a volume size limit of 256 TB, windows XP 32-bit only supports HDD"s up to 2TB in size. This is because XP only supports disks in MBR format, and the max MBR supports is 2TB. You may have issues installing Windows XP on these or any new HDD as they all use Advanced Format Drives which Windows XP can have some issues with before SP3.

NTFS is the default file system on Windows NT/2000/XP and newer.Clusters are the smallest addressable storage unit on the disk that the file system can address. Clusters can be of any power-of-two size between 512 bytes and 65536 bytes. (Unless the HDD has a larger sector size than 512 bytes, in which case the lower end of that range is whatever the HDD"s sector size is, a sector being the smallest addressable storage area on the HDD/SSD itself.)NTFS as-implemented currently supports management of up to about 4.1 billion of these clusters.
