Using a Barracuda 7200.11 SATA 3Gb/s 1-TB Hard Drive

Quick question:

Is it possible, and how difficult would it be, to install a new Barracuda 7200.11 SATA 3Gb/s 1-TB Hard Drive in a standard configuration Presario SR1350NX?

Will it fit in the drive bay slots (which slot does it use?) or will I have to remove something?
Will it readily accept SATA?
Will it readily accept a 1 TB-size drive (BIOS issues?)

Many thanks!

How do i set a seagate barracuda 7200 hd to slave


you don't need to setup as a Slave drive like IDE drives. You simply install the new SATA drive on an open port and follow the steps in this thread to format the hard drive. This will allow the hard drive to be used as a storage drive or whatever you plan to use it for.

Upgrade hard drives on 670


There is a 2TB limit with MBR (Master Boot Record), but even a larger drive can be partitioned. So a single 4TB (biggest on the market) drive will look like several drives.
External drives that are bigger than 4TB are really several physical drives combined by an array.

RAID 1 requires optional SCSI drives, cables, and even software?

Add on SATA 3 cards to PCI are not a good idea if you are looking for speed. They just bottlenecks the throughput.

Will it work 1 tb hdd in intel D865GSA mother board


Yes a 1 TeraByte Hard Drive will work for your intel motherboard.
http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/D865GSA/
The link above shows what your motherboard can handle. Any Hard Drives now can operate smoothly on any motherboard. You can only limit your RAM or memory from the motherboard. It can only handle 2GB of memory, but your fine on Hard Drive space and lots of memory. If you plan on a new Operating System, I suggest sticking to Windows XP or Vista. 3GB is required for Windows 7 operating systems. I hope this solves your issue of installing a new Hard Drive to old motherboard.

What type or brand of hard drive do I have to get to install in Acer AM5641 Desktop ? I want to upgrade to a 1 tb hd.


You currently have a 320GB 7200-rpm SATA II hard drive, with 8MB cache install on a base package of your make and model of computer. I would recommend a hard drive like Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB Internal hard drive. You can find it roughly for $70.00 - $90.00 at online stores like amazon, new egg, etc.

I hope this helps.

How can i connect a seagate barracuda hard drive to a sony vaio desktop pcv-rz22g? i'm installing an a additional hard drive but can't seem to find a sata connector on the motherboard, so there's no way...


You can't find a SATA connector because there isn't one. That computer was built before SATA drives were widely available. You will need a Serial ATA controller PCI card to connect your SATA drive to your computer, such as here:
http://www.compusa.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1455&name=Serial-ATA-Controllers&
Make sure it is a PCI card and NOT a PCI-Express (or PCI-e) card, as your computer doesn't have any PCI-Express slots either. Here's an example of what you need:
http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3501402&CatId=1455

Also, the Barracuda is probably a 3.0 Gbps drive, but will only run at the slower 1.5 Gbps speeds from the PCI interface cards. Again, it's an age thing. That computer was a top dog in it's day.

I am upgrading hard drive on T6528. Is it compatible with a 3Gb/sec sata hard drive? It does have an option to use as 1.5Gb/sec.


check your PC if it can accommodate sata and if the board supports 3gb/sec on the bios. if not check for possible firmware upgrade to support it.

Dell Vostro 200 desktop with Windows XP is not able to handle two


Vista doesn't generally like to be installed on a hard drive that big. Well, Windows, in general doesn't.

And, from the sounds of it, you didn't install Windows on your new primary 1.5TB drive, you just copied it from the 500GB drive, which won't work.

Here's what you should to, to solve this:
1) Swap out your 1.5TB drive with the 500GB drive again.
2) Swap out your secondard 1.5TB drive, with the new one.
3) Create a partition of 120GB or less on that drive
4) Install Windows on the new partition.
5) Put the other 1.5TB drive back in, as secondary.

Once that's done, you can swap out the new 1.5TB drive with your Windows partition on it, in place of the 500GB drive.

When you boot, Windows may ask you to select which operating system you want, just select Windows Vista, and you should be good to go.

I had a similar issue a few years ago, when I tried to install Windows on a 1TB drive, and couldn't get it to work. Once I partitioned a smaller space, it worked like magic.
