Re: 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

Hard disk not found message coming while installing windows server 2003 on HP Proliant ML150 G5 server system.pls help me

Save any critical or important files. Even if this is an secondary hard drive installation.
Turn off the power and unplug the PC from the outlet. Also, unplug all external connections to the Windows PC. Be sure to touch something metal to ground the user. Static electrical shocks can damage a PC.
Open the PC housing and determine the placement of the hard drive. Generally computers come with a latch that, when pressed, opens the housing. Make certain the space necessary for the hard drive is available. Usually the drive bays are in the front of the PC near the CD or DVD drives.
Make sure the IDE jumpers are set correctly. If the hard drive is the primary drive then set the jumpers to "Master" mode. If the hard drive is the secondary drive then set the jumpers to "Slave" mode. Please consult the hard drive's manual for the proper jumper setting for each mode. Another possibility--if there are two hard drive, set both drives to "Cable select" mode and the Windows PC will choose which one to make "Master" and "Slave."
Mount the hard drive in the available internal slot. The drive is sometimes mounted with four screws to the drive bay. Some internal drives have a rail that slides into the open bay. Look at the other devices to determine which mounting option is available in the specific computer.

Connect the hard drive cables to the Windows PC. Connect the power supply connector to the available cable. Next, connect the data cable to the available connector. The internal data cable usually has a red stripe to make identification easier.

Close the housing and reconnect the external power supply. Plug the external cables back into the computer and reconnect to the power supply.
Configure the BIOS. The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is accessible during computer start-up. To access the BIOS consult the computer manual to find out with which key press during start-up. Most often, the key is F8. Once in the BIOS change the hard drive setting to "Auto detect." When finished, exit the BIOS and allow the start-up to continue.
Format and partition the Windows PC hard drive. Select "Start" from the operating system menu. Choose "Control panel" from the start menu. Next click on "Administrative tools". From the administrative tools menu choose the "Computer management" icon and finally "Disk management." Choose the new hard drive and right click. Select "New partition" from the right click menu. Follow the on-screen option to partition and format the drive the drive.
Restart the computer and check the hard drive to ensure it is operating properly.

While i am installing win 2003 server OS, i am getting the error that hard disk didn't find in acer alto g710 model


You may need to go into your BIOS and make sure it is reconizing your hard drive. If you do not see it, make sure you have the hard drive cable connected correctly and have the latest drivers installed for the drive. (IDE, SATA, SCSI, etc.) Once the BIOS see the drive, you should have no problem. Good Luck

Connect ide or sata drives to a dell poweredge 2600 for additional storage

Yes and No..

The standard machine only allows SCSI, (no IDE or SATA or SAS connectors...

However SCSI drives are not cheap.. so

To overcome the power issue (you will notice there are no 4 pin molex connectors, or sata power connectors). However there is a 4 pin molex socket on the SCSI backplane. You can use one of those molex adaptor cables (one connector to many) to get power, from the molex you can use a 4 pin to SATA power connector.

Next step is to decide the drive you want to use. I personally use SCSI, SATA, SAS and IDE in mine (overkill I know).

Cheapness says use IDE or SATA. You can get a pci IDE/SATA controller card on ebay dirt cheap (PCI cards are compatible with the large PCIX slots), they dont take the entire "socket" up but they work (be carefull here, there is one 5v pci socket on these machines, and 6 pcix sockets, the pcix sockets will accept 3.3v pci cards (look at the notches).

Next you have to mount them, with a bit of jiggery pokery you can feed the IDE/SATA cables past the SCSI backplane into the hot swap bay. (If you dont have any empty caddy's pick them up off ebay), just remember you cant just pull em out like you can with the SCSI's!) - or use one of the 5 1/2 media bays.

Plud the other ends into the appropriate controller card (as installed in the PCI bus).

Load up the OS, install drivers (if needed - these should come with the pci card(s), use the disk manager to initialise/first format the drives etc.

All done.

I have done this myself running a 2600, with 2X U320 72gb SCSI (on Raid) 1 x IDE CD/DVDRW in Media bay, DAT 27 SCSI (channel B) in the second media bay. 2x 146gb SAS on a DELL SAS pcix card (in 2 of the hot swap bays) and an old 160gb IDE HDD (Funilly enough theres a bit towards the back of the two fans on the SCSI backplane that if you press the 3 1/2 drive against seems to fit perfectly in this place and stay there! (I think thats fluke to be honest).

All done :)

Server XSeries 220

Yes, that is the total amount of hard drive space.
This server was built for speed not for storage.

The xSeries 220 server supports four SCSI hard disk drives. The server does not support IDE hard disk drives. Some models support hot-swap hard disk drives and other models support only non-hot-swap hard disk
Your server supports four 1-inch (26 mm) slim, 3.5-inch SCSI hard disk drives in the hard disk drive bays. You can install four non-hot-swap hard
disk drives in the models that have the standard non-hot-swap drive cage. You can install three hot-swap hard disk drives and one on-hot-swap hard disk drive in the models that come with the hot-swap drive cage. Both the non-hot-swap and hot-swap drive cages hold a maximum of three hard disk drives.

The calculation at that time was 4 drives with 36.7GB storage.
Even if you find the drives somewhere, they will be very pricy.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

We have had an Intel Carrier Grade server TIGPR2U for 5 years now. The server is running Windows 2000 SP4 . Last week the server failed. On a subsequent reboot I can see the CD ROM light up , HD light up...

Can you remember the cause why the server failed? it may be due to a power surge? or some of the peripherals doesnt work. Check the memory, ide cords, and the circuit board. Let me know more info about the server. And the behavior. Thank you.

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]

There are many configuration settings, although i personally would hunt down an SCSI hard disk, many will fit from many other models just like IDE ones
