Question about HP StorageWorks MSA20 (0808736947138) Hard Drive Array

1 Answer

Adding additional drives to an MSA20 unit,

I want to add a couple of additional 250GB sata drives to my MSA20. What steps do I take to insure it will recognize them and allow me to begin using them? Will I need to reboot the Server that is using this StorageWorks device?

Thank you.

WHAT CAN USE TO REPLACE A MAXTOR 7Y250MO HARD DRIVE? IT IS IN A 6 1/2 YEAR OLD DELL DEMENSION XPS GEN 2 TOWER RUNNING WIN XP. THE OS CAN NO LONGER FIND THE DRIVE AND WILL NOT BOOT UP. I WOULD LIKE TO...


Hi,
The Dell Dimension XPS GEN2 has support for both, IDE and SATA standards. Your Maxtor is SATA drive, you can use any SATA drive as replacement. You mentioned that the OS no longer find the drive, make sure that you load SATA drivers at your Windows XP reinstallation, maybe your old drive is not defective only not recognized in the installation process. You can download the floppy image with required drivers here, see SATA drivers section. When you start Windows installation, at the Windows Setup Screen you should see, at the bottom of the screen, a message saying "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver." At that point press the F6 button and when the next screen appears press S key to specify an additional device. Select the drivers from the provided list(to load all drivers from the disk, beacuse I don't know which is yours as I don't know the content of the disk, repeat steps to specify additional device), after drivers load your hard drive should be recognized and you can continue installing the Windows XP operating system. Ignore these steps if your hard was already tested and confirmed that is defective. Good luck!
If this is the solution for your problem, please rate my post, otherwise give us more details.

Andras

Installing new sata drive in HP pc


a clean xp installation does not recognize sata drives at all. you can either use nlite to build a custom install cd, press f6 during setup to load additional drivers, try to change your sata mode from native to compatible in your bios or use your restore cds.

Need to add SATA controller driver


Hi voyager99,
You can download the driver, (VIA 8237 SATA/RAID driver) from PC Chips but I doupt it will help.
If your bios did no see the 250GB drive than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be fixed.
http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=305&DetailName=Driver&MenuID=1&LanID=0
Running the SATA/RAID driver will most likely not help the bios see your drive.
Buying a PCI serial SATA controller card may allow your SATA drive run but it will run at the PCI bus speed. A decent controll card may cost as much as a new board that will run your current devices.

Good luck!
Mike

Your motherboard does NOT support SATA drives, without an added SATA controller. It does support PATA drives, such as the Samsung SP2514N and the Seagate PATA drive you listed, as well as any other PATA drive. A PATA drive may be referred to as PATA, IDE, ATA100, ATA133, or even ATA66, but not SCSI, Ultra320, U320, or SATA, SATA II, SATA100, SATA300, etc.

The Seagate drives are easy to identify, their model number ends in AS if it is a SATA drive, and just A if it is a PATA drive.
