Unscrew and unplug the old one. Check the new one has the same jumper settings (ususallly you need the CS link in) then fit it back in the same way.
It's completely basic- don't worry, even a daft noob can do it with a screwdriver.
The complicated bit is re-installing the software.
You'll come unstuck if this was your primary drive because you'll need to re-install the OS i.e.Windows and in which case you will probably need to re-install everything else you had before on the old drive.

Well you will need to run a backup of your computer now if you can. The drive will need to be formatted with the OS(operating system) you will be using. Make sure you have all the drivers you need such as Video, Network and sound. You can find them at your computer manufacturers website.

Dell poweredge internet connection problem


A SCSI device would be a hard drive. Sound like you need to check the network cable, card, and configuration. Start by doing a simple ping.

ipconfig /all is the cmd to see the settings. Then ping the Gateway listed.

I want to install windos 2003 server on dell poweredge 2600 but the server is very slow i want help


Hello,

I am not sure what you mean by "slow" so I will anwer in general terms. I would recommend 1st that you make sure the PowerEdge meets the recommended hardware specs for Windows Swerver 2003. (Memory, CPU speed, Hard drive capacity, etc.) 2nd- I would run two Xeon processors instead of one and add as much memory as you can put in your system.

I run MS Server 2003 on one of my servers and here is the configuration that I am using:
2 Xeon 2.8GHz processors
6GB ECC Memory
120GB hard drive for the server operating system (Nothing else is on this drive)
750GB hard drive for all other applications
External NAS storage for files, data, etc. (connected to my netword via Ethernet 5e)

With this setup, my server has been running very well for 6 years now. I do maintanance every week on it to keep it up to par. (Simple dusting, checking cables, etc.)

Good Luck.

I have a Gateway Server model 9210 Raid 5 (3 drives) Small Bus. Server 2003 and one drive failed. I purchased the same dive. Do i just shut down the server and replace the bad drive or do i hv to go into...


Hello,

With a RAID 5 setup, if you replace the drive with the exact model, you only need to shut down the server, replace the drive, power on, and the RAID will remount the new drive to the needed confiuration.

Good Luck.

When i install MS windows server 2003 in IBM x3400 server it gives me message that setup could not find any hard desk installed in your computer.


The hard drive may only needs the data cables re-connecting or the hard drive may be faulty.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer, Windows installed and the computer's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer again.

Hard disk not detected


Check to see if hard drive is fully plugged in/reseat cables/harddrive. see if this fixes the problem
if not listen to see if the drive spins up, if it fails to spin up then the hard drive is bad
if hard drive spins up but clicks at regular intervals, it is bad
Try a different drive cable
Try to replace with a known good hard drive, if it still is not detected check the bios to see if the drive controller is enabled.

If the controller is enabled and cannot detect a hard drive the controller may have failed.

We are getting error of hal.dll missing


hal.dll is missing used to be a cause of a very common virus from years ago. However the more likely scenario is going to be a bad hard drive. Make sure you run hardware diagnostics on the server, specifically on the hard drive. If everything checks out, run a virus scan from outside the OS, or safe mode. Hopefully this helps.

Hard disk not found message coming while installing windows server 2003 on HP Proliant ML150 G5 server system.pls help me


1
Save any critical or important files. Even if this is an secondary hard drive installation.
2
Turn off the power and unplug the PC from the outlet. Also, unplug all external connections to the Windows PC. Be sure to touch something metal to ground the user. Static electrical shocks can damage a PC.
3
Open the PC housing and determine the placement of the hard drive. Generally computers come with a latch that, when pressed, opens the housing. Make certain the space necessary for the hard drive is available. Usually the drive bays are in the front of the PC near the CD or DVD drives.
4
Make sure the IDE jumpers are set correctly. If the hard drive is the primary drive then set the jumpers to "Master" mode. If the hard drive is the secondary drive then set the jumpers to "Slave" mode. Please consult the hard drive's manual for the proper jumper setting for each mode. Another possibility--if there are two hard drive, set both drives to "Cable select" mode and the Windows PC will choose which one to make "Master" and "Slave."
5
Mount the hard drive in the available internal slot. The drive is sometimes mounted with four screws to the drive bay. Some internal drives have a rail that slides into the open bay. Look at the other devices to determine which mounting option is available in the specific computer.

6
Connect the hard drive cables to the Windows PC. Connect the power supply connector to the available cable. Next, connect the data cable to the available connector. The internal data cable usually has a red stripe to make identification easier.

7
Close the housing and reconnect the external power supply. Plug the external cables back into the computer and reconnect to the power supply.
8
Configure the BIOS. The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is accessible during computer start-up. To access the BIOS consult the computer manual to find out with which key press during start-up. Most often, the key is F8. Once in the BIOS change the hard drive setting to "Auto detect." When finished, exit the BIOS and allow the start-up to continue.
9
Format and partition the Windows PC hard drive. Select "Start" from the operating system menu. Choose "Control panel" from the start menu. Next click on "Administrative tools". From the administrative tools menu choose the "Computer management" icon and finally "Disk management." Choose the new hard drive and right click. Select "New partition" from the right click menu. Follow the on-screen option to partition and format the drive the drive.
10
Restart the computer and check the hard drive to ensure it is operating properly.

I would like to know can I put windows 2008 server on this server? if I can where Can I get all the driver to support it?


Server 2008 is still relatively new.

Whilst quite a bit of hardware is already supported with 2008 out of the box I would suggest doing an upgrade install with 2003 as a base.
The last server upgrade I did took a similar route and even though much of the hardware was not listed in the compatibility report It did work fine.

From what I understand (and some of the ms bulletins can be hard to follow) some drivers seem to carry over with like a backward compatibility.

If the server is not in use yet you could always get the trail version from MS just to test the theory.

Generally servers are not as picky as a regular desktp OS about a lot of the hardware.

Hi

The error message you are receiving "Inquiry command failed Using IBM-PC ServerRaid Host adapter" makes me think you are attaching the tape drive to the ServerRaid Controller, which is only for Hard Disks. There should be a normal SCSI interface for attaching tape drives, etc. It's possible that the ServerRaid card is a PCI (or older) plug in card, and the normal SCSI interface will be on the main motherboard. If you look on the IBM website for the Hardware Maintenance Manual, it should hopefully make things clearer.

The reason you may not be seeing the hard drives in CMOS, is because you will need to use the IBM ServerRaid Utility to view and configure the disks.

Gateway 995 boot problems


Maybe you can check you BIOS / your boot device priority and set it to your hard drive as default.

If this doesn't work, then the problem would be your hard drive (it's read / write function is not functioning properly.)
