Is this hard drive in a RAID set? if it is, you will need to replace it with the exact same drive. After you do that, you will need to go into the RAID controller bios and initiate a rebuild.

How to install sata hard drive on dell power edge

You have to "FDisk" or "Partition" the Drive before Windows will see it.

XP - Goto: Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Computer Management | Disk Management
Vista/Win7 - Goto: Control Panel | System and Security | Administrative Tools | Computer Management | Disk Management
You will see hopefully both Drives... Highlight the New One... Create a New Partion by Right Clicking or use the Pull Downs. It will ask size etc... use the defaults.
Next Format the Drive - Select the Drive again...Right Click Format using Quick Format to save time and you should be set.

I have lost the scsi drive on a dell 1600sc and would like to convert to sata. During boot up the sata controller is reconizing the 2 hard drives but, come but with "no primary drive found"

The best thing to do is reinstalling SCSI, SATA can only manage two disk per channel on this server, and the data transfer time is longer.

If you set SATA, check jumper settings, that is probably reason why you get no primary drive.
Also check bios settings , do hdd auto detect and save in bios if you want to use sata.

If instead you want to go back to SCSI, download the drivers from the link below.

Download page from Dell.

Beeping PowerEdge 1300

When a Dell server beeps in every 3-5 second that mean it comes from Raid controller.
Dell calls PERC Controller.
It usually reason of a disk failure.

Install open manage server administrator on your server.
See which disks are failed ?

Try to run Power edge diagnostics on the failed disk.
If it passes the test reseat the disk.
if it fails disk has to be replaced with a new one.
If passes the quick test, reseat the disk and update disk + perc firmware and driver to the latest level. that will solve the problem!!

99% beeping comes from perc controller because of a failed HDD
