SOURCE: How to install new hard drive
External drives have come a long way and run almost as fast as many internal drives. If your need for extra hard drive space is pretty much driven by the Microsoft Flight Simulator game, you could get by with using an external drive. A few things, though: Make sure your system is supporting USB 2.0 (it should be) and that the drive runs at least 5400rpm. External HDD's run off standard 120v AC power.
Otherwise, if you want to get an internal drive, you can certainly get another ATA-133 drive. But SATA is faster and your computer may support it. The D530 CMT (convertible mini-tower) definitely does. But there is also the D530 SFF (small form factor), and D530 USD (ultra slim desktop)--not sure if those are rigged for SATA support.
As for maximum hard disk size supported, that's up to the operating system (e.g. Windows XP vs. Vista). You likely won't need any bios updates because of a new hard drive installation. However, its not a bad idea to review the BIOS update release notes to see what they're addressing.

you need to initialize the newly added drive in disk management, then format the drive once disk management assigns a drive letter.
CONTROL PANEL, ADMIINSTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, DISK MANAGEMENT
There you should be able to see the 2nd drive, Right click and INITALISE it, once it is initialized, it will be assigned a drive letter and you can format the drive

Server 2008 is not detecting your drives, because it does not have drives for what ever hard drive controller you are using. You will need to determine which controller your drives are attached to and load the appropriate driver during setup. I believe this system has built in SCSI and SATA controller and often shipped with add - in storage cards. Our came with a promise sata raid controller.

You need to do a number of things:
1) You need to carefully remove the door and the whole front face of the desktop (the front face opens like a door it swings open from left to right)
2) Once you have the front pannel open take a philips screwdriver and unscrew the memory card readers that is show in front of the deskop (there is one screw holding this card reader in place probably on the upper right hand corner.
3) Carefully remove the card reader by jiggiling it lightly till the unit comes off.
4) After you remove the card reader, you will immediatly see the hard drive directly behind the reader that you just removed.
5) Now look inside the desktop (because you removed the right hand side door: the big one that alows you to see inside the pc) and remove all cables from this hard drive before you read #6 below
6) Inside the desktop, Locate the hard drive, put your hand on the back of it and lift on the green plastic part along side the hard drive where you can see the harddrive screw which is on a metal track stopped by a green plastic stopper.
7) Lift the green plastic stopper and push the back of the hard drive to the front of the desktop.
8) Unscrew all screws from old hard drive and rescrew them on the new one in the exact same spots at the old hard drive.
9)Once you finish screwing on the screws, slide the new hard drive back from where the old one was
10) reconnect all data cables and power supply cable.
11) follow steps 7 thru 1 to put unit back together again. Go thru steps 7 thru one backwards
I hope this helps
