Will a seagate pipeline 500 gb hdd from a lorax dvr work in a pc?


Yes it will work in a PC. All 3.5" sata drives are standardized. Connect it via a SATA cable and you will need to format the drive to work with windows. To do this:

1) Right-click on my computer
2) Click on "Manage"
3) Click yes to allow if any dialogue's pop up.
4) When the menu pops up look at the left side menu and click on "Disk Management"
5) Look for your drive in the list when it populates. It should show a 500GB drive and it may show an error on it since it is not formatted for windows.
6) Be sure this is the correct drive you want to use! Formatting it will erase EVERYTHING on the drive.
7) Right click on the drive in the bottom list and select the Format option.
8) Give it whatever name you want, make sure the format is set to NTFS, check the box for quick format.
9) Let it format, this should only take a few minutes. After that it will show up as a blank drive in My Computer!

Hi , I have PI845Z mercury mother board and i want to know whether it supports 4gb ram or not and also 500 gb hard disk.


The PI845Z is, unfortunately, limited to 2GB RAM max (DDR 266/333 RAM). As for the hard drive, it does not seem to support SATA hard drives, but if you can find a 500Gb IDE hard drive that should be fine :)

This won't be the best solution for you perhaps because I'm not a windows guy, but download the gparted (just google for gparted) cd image, burn it to disk and boot it up. Use that to partition and format the drive.

If this is a newer computer, your disk may not be partitioned properly / fully. You can check this by going to the system's storage management appliction like this:

  1. Start the MMC (Start - Run - MMC)
  2. Select "Add/Remove Snap-in" from the Console menu
  3. Click Add
  4. Select Disk Management and click Add
  5. Select Local Computer and click Finish
  6. Click Close
  7. Click OK to the main dialog
  8. Locate the disk in question
  9. Make sure the partition(s) span the entire disk
If the entire disk isn't being used by a single partition, you have two choises:

1. Add a new partition for the unused disk space
2a. Backup al data on the disk, and delete the partition
2b. create a new partition to span the entire disk, and then right-click and format it.

If the entire disk isn't being reported, you may need to update the motherboard bios.

Sata hdd not Detect


To install Windows XP on SATA or advanced IDE hard drive, you will need to insert a driver diskette at the time of starting the installation process and pressing "F6". For more details visit the link below:

Installing Windows Server 2003 on a preinstalled Vista OS


The reason it is showing "no hard disk" is because you have a SATA hard drive, and there is no SATA support on the WS2003 software, so it doesn't even "see" the drive when trying to install.

What you can do is download SATA drivers for your hard drive to your machine. Once downloaded and/or extracted, restart the installation but choose F6 to load "SCSI or 3rd party drivers", then point to the downloaded drivers.

Your installation will then load the SATA drivers, thereby recognizing the hard drive and you'll be able to successfully install Windows.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

My dvd rw is not detected


Sounds like you need your manufacturer's SATA drivers.

This problem exists a lot when installing Windows from scratch on SATA hard disks. When you start the installation, Windows prompts you to "load additional drivers". It's at this point you put a floppy disk with the SATA drivers in.

If your install is already working, but just stopped as you say... then you could hunt around the BIOS for a SATA "compatibility" mode, which will get you booting straight away. Install the SATA drivers and you can then put the drive back into normal operation instead of compatibility mode.

This is also the reason why your other hard disk with Windows can see the SATA disk and optical drive... it probably has the SATA drivers installed.

Hard drive..


Using SATA, there is no Primary/Secondary Master/Slave connection. Each HDD is connected to One port straight. As for partitioning, you can either use Fdisk or you can boot straight from the Windows CD and create Partitions and load Windows.
