PE 2600 has 6 drive bays, organised as either one set of 6 or 2 sets of 3 .

Normally the drives are arranged in a 'RAID' configuration (at least 2 drives, one of which can be allowed to fail and be replaced without loosing your data)

... however if you have only a single drive, plainly this is not possible and you can add whatever additional drives you like ....

You can always add more storage to a server, as long as you have enough internal connectors in the server. You can also purchase another scsi or sata backplane to add more ports if you're out of internal connectors.
You may also want to look into a SAN or NAS device to offload some of your not too frequently used data. Many SAN devices give incredible performance with pretty good scalability.

Dell provides lifetime tech support for all PE servers. Call them at 800-945-3355 and give them the service tag or express service code from the server. If it can be done, they will tell you how.
Good luck!

Dell poweredge 2600 wont load anything from hard-drives what do i do?


Go into CTRL-M, go to Configure>View/Add, accept and save Disk View if prompted, and check the status of each drive. What is your RAID configuration (F3) and the drive statuses? If you are in the States, call Dell support 8008228965 - it is free whether in or out of warranty. It will be much easier to explain what you see.

Yes, any motherboard that supports "larger-than-32GB" disk-drives should support larger disk-drives.

Yes, most motherboards support up to 512MB per stick of RAM.

Ide controller for dell inspiron 2500 laptop


Any 20GB disk-drive has built-in drive-electronics,
which interface with the IDE hardware on the motherboard of the laptop -- typically, laptops do *NOT* have "plug-in" adapters for such "basic" functions, unlike desktops, where you can change video/audio/network hardware via add-in cards.

You probably can use any disk-drive that is _smaller_ than 32GB -- disks larger than 32GB require newer motherboards, due to the larger capacity of those disks.

Hard drive problem


It's possible that your computer's motherboard is "old", and it only supports a maximum of 32GB per disk-drive.

Buy a new 80GB or 160GB disk-drive, and copy all your files from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.

Epox motherboard and SATA disk


According to the hard drive manufacturer Maxtor, motherboard host controllers using the VIA and SIS chipsets VT8237, VT8237R, VT6420, VT6421L, SIS760, SIS964 found on the ECS 755-A2 manufactured in 2003, do not support SATA 3 Gbit/s drives. To address interoperability problems, the largest hard drive manufacturer, Seagate/Maxtor, has added a user-accessible jumper-switch known as the Force 150, to switch between 150 MB/s and 300 MB/s operation.[9] Users with a SATA 1.5 Gbit/s motherboard with one of the listed chipsets should either buy an ordinary SATA 1.5 Gbit/s hard disk, buy a SATA 3 Gbit/s hard disk with the user-accessible jumper, or buy a PCI or PCI-E card to add full SATA 3 Gbit/s capability and compatibility. Western Digital uses a jumper setting called "OPT1 Enabled" to force 150 MB/s data transfer speed. OPT1 is used by putting the jumper on pins 5 & 6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA
