Cant find hard drive to install op system hi got a old pc thought id have a fiddle with to turn into media center but i formatted the hd and used it for storage.. now when its back in the original pc when...


Make sure the hard disk is plugged as a master, alone, in the first IDE connector. Then make sure it's formatted to NTFS and set as active - use this for that

If even this disk can't detect it then either the hdd or the motherboard have a defect - find this out by connecting another disk and see how it goes.

I need a diagnostic tool for RAID falure code 0. Initial boot indicates degraded condition. DISK scan does not seem to remedy the issue. Did the drive actuually fail? Is there a fix? Primary disk still...


It looks like you have two arrays here. The first one being a mirrored RAID array and has only one disk. This means that the other disk has failed in some sort. This does not mean that the drive is bad, just the RAID failed for some reason. You will need to rebuild the RAID if you want to maintain the same level of redundancy.

You can just attempt a rebuild the RAID to the same drives but if this fails you will want to replace the bad drive. In order to do this you will need to make sure you can tell which drive is which. You do not want to mirror the bad drive to the good one.

If attempting a rebuild to the existing drive does not work or is not an option (because the failed drive could really be bad), you will need to determine which physical drive needs to be replaced. You may be able to hot-swap the drive but if you can power things down, that is always safest. Once the new drive is installed, you can rebuild to it and all should be well after that.

Maxtor hard drive installation


Its a long process! First you have to transfer your saved files to disk. CD,DVD, or Floppy. Insert your copy of windows Install disk and turn your computer off and then back on. When Windows asks you if you want to repair or install a fresh version of windows, click fresh version. Have your copy of Serial Numbers ready for your Windows disk. Somewhere in the installation Windows will ask you if you want to install windows to the same drive? Delete this Partition? or Create a Partition?, Know how many Gigabyte or Megabyte your Hard drive is. Click on Delete Partition, Your Hard Drive is now Un-allocated. Now Click Create Partition and enter the amount of Bytes you want to allocate to C: drive, Usually half of what the computer is showing you what you have. Now you have a primary drive of C: and Un-Allocated space, Scroll down with your arrow key and select the unallocated drive and click create drive, the remainder of bytes on your drive will be allocated to that drive and assigned a different drive letter. (D) or what ever. Go back up to C: drive and say install windows to that drive, and from there just follow the windows installation. Good Luck.

I have asimpletech hard drive Im tying to use on a windows 98 and don['t know what to do.


Unfortunately there are maximum drive capacity limitations under that operating system, and your simpletech drive might be over the boundaries. Ive heard of Hard Drive size limitations under older motherboards that say you cant go over 139 Gigabytes but I wouldn't see any indication where this limitation would apply to USB connected HD's.

TAKE IT OUT AND RE-INSTALL IT.CHECK THE JUMPERS AND MAKE SHURE THEY ARE SET TO MASTER OR FACTORY SETTINGS.LOOK AT THE JUMPERS ON THE OLD HARD DRIVE THAT YOU ARE REPLACING AND SET THEM EXACTLY AS THAT DRIVE.CHECK ALL CONNECTORS AND RIBBONS FOR SOLID CONNECTIONS.SOMETIMES,THE PINS INSIDE THE HARDDRIVE CONNECTOR BEND SLIGHTLY.IT IS REALLY HARD TO TELL UNLESS YOU REALLY LOOK AT THEM CAREFULLY.

Labtop computer internal hard drive


The drive you have is a IDE, Ultra DMA 133, 4200 RPM.

If you are running XP or Vista you can purchase any brand hard drive. Size depends on what you want to spend. Recommend Maxtor. Just make sure it is IDE and for a laptop. Most computer retailers will sell them (BestBuy, Circuit City, etc)

My maxtor hard drive is only 465gb. on the box it said 500. have i been ripped?


Can you give me the model number so i can confirm it for you.
the basic is Hard drive manufactures calculate 1000MB=1GB
but windows calculate 1024=1GB in that case windows show you less amount, its the technical way to arranging the FAT table. most of the time you may not been ripped, if you can give me the model number i can confirm.
