Question about HP Compaq d530 PC Desktop

ATA HDD on IDE connector with a SATA drive on a SATA connector?

My d530 has the Intel 865G chipset that gave early support for SATA, providing two SATA connectors on the mobo. I want to increase hard drive capacity while keeping the original Maxtor ATA/133 HDD as a primary.

So can I leave my Maxtor plugged into it's primary IDE mobo connector and simply plug a new SATA drive into one of the SATA connectors? The Intel 865G chipset only supports speeds up to 150, so a 300 rated drive will have to be slowed to 150 with a jumper to be recognized by XP. Some suppliers advise that drive warranties are voided if you use a jumper to slow it's speed, even when suggested to do so by the manufacturer.

Thanks,

Mark

    Tigerdirect.ca has 3 pages of SATA-300 drives, but only a single 150. No wonder as the 150 was the "intro" speed, not much if any faster than the PATA-133 drives.

    I'm a little hesitant to push my d530 that far, and for good reason: from an HP "Product Technology Brief" published May 2003, "Although the 865G chipset does support SATA, HP engineering does not believe the entire solution is ... ready for mainstream corporate deployment. Essentially, the current maturity of the SATA subsystem (controller/driver/HDD) does not meet HP’s robustness and error recovery requirements and hence will not be made available until after the d530 launch."
    Anyone try this with a d530 or with any mobo with the Intel 82801EB Serial ATA 24D1 controller?

Yes you can do this but rather that buy a sata II hdd just buy a sata hdd. Might even be a little cheaper. Once you install go into the system bios & enable the sata drive. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Can't setup OS in SATA HDD in Intel d945gccr


Hi.

XP will not install until you go into the BIOS and find the menu page (probably by moving across the top level of tabs) where the SATA hard drives are configured. On that page you will see the ports and at least one, maybe all, will be Enabled. Close to that will be the port mode, usually setable individually for each port. Choices may include IDE (or PATA) Emulation, SATA, AHCI. Set your port to IDE emulation. Now look at the bottom for the key to Save and Exit - often the F10 key, press that key and select OK, the computer will restart and you should now be able to install Windows XP without any problems.

To get into the BIOS you have to press the Del or Esc key when you first turn the computer on.


Regards.

WHAT HD & SIZE RECOMMENDED FOR MY GATEWAY 500S PC WITH OS XP?


You cannot use a SATA (serial ATA HDD in this machine. You need a PATA (parallel ATA) HDD, also known as IDE, ULTRA IDE, ULTRA ATA. This has a 40-pin ribbon connector & a 4-pin power connector.
Sizes generally available would be 80GB up to 250GB, although very few PATA drives are now sold since SATA is the new standard.

That motherboard doesnt support ATA it supports upto 6 SATA devices which is actually better and faster. You will need to take your DVD/RW back and ask to swap for a SATA and also make sure you buy a SATA cable and good thing is these are actually cheaper and faster. Its actually a very nice motherboard dont be disappointed. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

Can i use a sata hard drive with my ga 7vklm mobo


The Gigabyte GA-7VKMP motherboard does not support serial ATA SATA drives. Open the link provided; http://tw2005.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Products/Products_GA-7VKMP.htm
2 x ATA 66/100/133 bus master IDE ports
1 x FDD, 2 x HDD and 1 x CD audio input
IrDA(1x5) and COM2 on board
GBT standard front panel
2 x USB2.0 connectors (support 4 ports by cable)

You can connect the adapter below to an opened IDE port and connect a SATA 1.5 drive to your system.
http://www.satagear.com/SATA-MM-A1_SATA_Adapter.html
This should allow you're SATA drive to transfer data faster than the 133MHz standard IDE speed.

Cheers'

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

Does my d530 CMT have a SATA connector?


Answers to your questions:
1. Yes
2. Very likely
3. a Google search should show you what the connectors look like.
4 HP/Compaq do a good job of providing documentation. Go to hp.com and put in your system information. You should be able to locate motherboard diagrams there. If you can't let me know and I'll try to locate them.

What new HDD will match my Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8?


Mark,
You can use any size HDD in your computer as a slave and it does not have to be an exact match for the maxtor. You will however need the make sure that the connections on the new drive match. For example SATA drives will not attache to an IDE cable and vice versa. The drive that you mentioned is an IDE style drive so unless your MOBO has SATA connectors on it you will need to buy an IDE/EIDE drive.
