SCSI and IDE HDs, can they work together?

I?ve got a Pentium 3 server wth an SCSI HD. Due to lack of space I tried to add a 40 GB IDE HD, as slave and as masters. When I restarted the computer it didn?t recognize the SCSI and obviously the Windows Server 2000 OS. How do you combine IDE an SCSI so that they work together? TIA

This next solution is viable in win 98, and I don?t see any reason why it shouldn?t work for you too. If you know of anything I?m missing you should consult someone else. The solution is slightly complex, so I hope I can explain it properly: 1. Create a startup disk so you can format and install windows. 2. Set the new HD as master and connect it to Primary IDE. 3. Disconnect the SCSI and remove it. 4. Restart the computer with the disk you created (with the new HD connected). 5. Go to the Bios settings in order to make sure that the computer does recognize the new HD as the primary drive in the first IDE. 6. Now, FDisk the new HD, set the partitions, restart and format it. Install the OS and make sure it is working properly. 7. Insert the SCSI and restart again. 8. At this stage the computer would reboot into the IDE and see the SCSI/ You may have to change something in the OS settings for that, but I don?t know where. Good luck.

Adding old hard disk. 20 GB Quantum Fireball Ict, in Dell 9200 PC


if it's old it's probably IDE also known as PATA. it looks like a wide ribbon. There should be a header on the motherboard that looks exactly like the plug on the back of the hard drive. It will be labeled IDE1 probably if you have it. Old motherboards used to have 2 IDE headers, modern ones have one or none. The ribbon will have three plugs--one for the mobo, and then two spaced closer together for the master and the slave. You need to hook it to the appropriate plug (master if it's the only device on the ribbon) and make sure the jumpers on the HD are set properly to make it self-identify as the master. Good luck!

Need to know the slave jumper for the quantum atlas iv hd


Hi,

If the drive you're referring to is the SCSI model, it doesn't have a "slave" option, but can be set to various SCSI ID's.

Click this link to get the skinny on all your jumper options:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/storage/6848p/Jumpers.htm

If you are using it on an older MAC it should work fine set to ID 1, if you want to use it on a PC check first if the PC even has a SCSI connector(rare for PC's of the same age as that drive as they primarily used IDE). The cables look almost identical but are in no way compatible

Hope this helps FixYa

Adding DVD to Poweredge 2600


PE2600 has lots of spare power (unless you are already using all 6 SCSI drive bays) ..

You can fit 3 x SATA drives in the space where the (useless) tape backup unit is sitting [you can even buy a 'proper' enclosure = Icy Dock MB453SPF or I think the SNT-2131 will fit ] .. and you can split the power off the Tape drive (4pin) power socket ..

I've not found a DVD burner (only a combined DVD reader / CD burner = TS-L462C) .. however if you have a spare IDE port you should be able to use an external unit [you will need an e-ide cable & enclosure for the drive]

Essential you have one license allowed and it checks the primary HD via its 'utilities function', and only does a general scan of slave. Since you did not mention Norton version nor your OS general assist here. You might consider going into Options and having it scan both HDs, worked for me.

Would a SCSI disk and a IDE disk work together?


This solution works on WIN98 and I don?t see a reason why it wont work on you If there is something that you were missing you might want to check with anther expert. This solution is a little complex so I hope ill be able to explain it well enough: 1. Make a boot disk so u can format and install windows. 2. Define the new HD as MASTER and hook it up to "primary IDE" 3. Disconnect the SCSI and pull the board out. 4. Reset the comp from the boot disk u made (HD is connected) 5. Get in "bios settings" and make sure that the new HD is defined as "primary drive" In the 1st IDE 6. Now, perform a FDisk on the new HD, define partitions, do a reset and format the HD Install the operating system you wish to have, make sure it works well. 7. install the SCSI board and its HD make anther reset. 8. now the comp is supposed to make boot and recognize the SCSI, it is possible that you will need to define your system configurations but for that, regretfully, I cannot guide you Although this is not necessarily have to happen. Good luck
