Adding a second hard drive

I have a PC based on INTEL 845 GLAD motherboard with a Samsung HDD of 30 GB capacity. I have now procured a 120 GB Western Digital HDD (SATA drive). However, I do not see any corresponding slots on the motherboard for adding this HDD. How should I go about it? Or is the motherboard incapable of taking on a SATA drive?

Swaping hdd 845 motherboard to 915 motherboard


its always safe to have data backed up

u can swap the HDD

but bootup with the Win2K CD in the Drive and after the files are loaded at the first screen select install then after it detects the OS select R (Repair) and this will reinstall the operating system files and then you can use the system as before though u may have to install the device drivers and motherboard drivers

for any other clarifications u can place a comment in the same question or u can mail me at mail2pvs@gmail.com

I am usubg 845 gvrs motherboard now I want to installed extra internal harddisk what will be ideal harddisk and size


The size of the hard disk depends upon what type of programs you are running and the amount of data you need to store.
Programs that create large amount of data are audio and video files.
The tpye of hard drive depends on what type of disk controller you have, it could be IDE or SATA disk controller, you need to check your computer's hard disk controller.
The average hard disk capacity is 160 Gb to 180 Gb and goes up to 1 Tb, but the largest capacity drive your cmputer can support will depend upon the BIOS.

Go into the control panel. Press administrative tools. Select computer management. Under storage select disk management. Look for the hard drive. Make sure there isn't an additional partition on the drive. If there is you can change and delete partitions on this drive as well.

Maximum hard disk support


this hard drive size will work with your motherboard but the problem is the size will be detected only up to 130 GB or less, so if you will be using that size of hard drive you will just waste it.. so better use a 120 GB of hard drive or upgrade your motherboard so you can use a 250 GB.....

Hope that helps.............

External Hard drive 750 gb does not meet the storage capacity as describe


Hi scotti0619,

The answer to this question is spelled out by the manufacturer, Western Digital, at http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=615&p_created=1034613413&p_sid=coT55l9j&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MzEsMzEmcF9wcm9kcz0yMjgsMjA5LDIyMiZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9My4yMjImcF9jdj0mcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1hbnN3ZXJzLnNlYXJjaF9mbmwmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1mb3JtYXR0ZWQgY2FwYWNpdHk*&p_li=&p_topview=1.

The capacity you are seeing is alcuatlly measured in a binary (base 2) system rather than the simplistic base 10 system of 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. In binary measurement, 1 GB = 1,073,724,841 bytes. Thus, 750 GB in base 10 = 698.47 GB in base 2. You are likely getting the full capacity from your drive, but it is simply being looked at on a different scale.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Changing motherboard


Since both boards use the same chipset (Intel 845), you shouldn't have any problem with components. (The one possible glitch will be the memory - some motherboards are a little picky.)
Keep in mind that you will likely have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall your operating system and programs, but sometimes you get lucky. (Even then, if you're running Windows XP, Microsoft is likely to ask you to reactivate.)

Good luck.

250gb sata hard disk to 845 glad mother board


Hello all. I have the same issue. My MB is 845G [P4 2.4 Ghz] and SATA harddisk I need to install is Seagate 250 GB Baracuda with 3.0Gb/s interface, I belive which makes this HD as SATA II. So for this motherboard should I prefer PCI cards which support SATA II over the supports SATA I [these are cheaper].

Thanks so mcuh!!!

SP0812N HDD 80Gb


Hi,
this mainly depends on The Operating system, if your using Windows 2000 or above it should,nt be an issue.
sometimes there are limitations on 2 hard-drives sharing the same IDE channel on the mainboard.
Try putting the second hard-drive on the secondary motherboard slot, with it,s own individual cable.
If non of the above works, it,s possibly not formatting correctly.
you,ll need a program that zeros then formats the drive.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.
