If you have enough hd space and memory , just install ms virtual server / install server os , and you will be able to use as another server (virtual server).
you can connect to it by name / ip address etc., just like a real physical server.
good luck

Asus n75sf-dh71 second hard drive not recognized

The second drive may not be part of the user accessible system, it is probably the system restore drive. According to the manufacturer spec your system should only have one HDD at 1TB. Without looking at the BIOS it is not possible for me to advise on the correct procedure to enable something that may already be in use.

Error sc 870

One possibility:
Address book data stored on the hard
disk was detected as abnormal when it
was accessed from either the
operation panel or the network.
?? Initialize the address book
data (SP5-846-050).
?? Initialize the user information
?? Replace the HDD.HDD defective

When the machine reaches the Ready condition after boot-up, the operator turns OFF the Main Power
Switch without first pressing the Operation Switch. As a result, the flash memory on the controller board is
damaged, triggering the SC.
1. Please be aware of the following:
Before turning off the machine's main power, always make sure that the Operation Switch LED is not
lit or blinking. By turning the Main Power OFF while the LED is still lit or blinking, may cause damage to
the machine's hard disk or memory.

Hard disk is not running frm last boot

- This means that your operating system may have collapsed and needs repair.
- To repair, enslave your hard drive to another machine by:
- Make sure the second computer has a good operating system.
- Remove the hard disk from your computer.
- Remove CD/DVD Rom from the second computer and fix your hard disk on
that drive.
- Start the computer.It will display that you're running on two drives.[Unix]
- Press F1 to save changes and continue.
- The machine notes one drive needs repair and starts the repair process.
- After it has completed and opened your system, turn it off and remove the
hard disk.
- Fix it on the first machine and start it.
- If this fails,you may need to format the hard disk.

Want to change from SCSI to SATA. How can this be done?


You will need to change the backplane to a SATA type. (Fairly easy) Once done, you can change your hard drives and start using the new configuration.

Good Luck

Server is chirping; lights look normal

You need to check you smart sensors in bios most likely a hard disk failure. Yeah i believe the WD drivers chirp and some play music.

Restart and watch screen should tell you a bios key to hit.
Open and look for smart data should be around hard disk config
If it is not ther eyou may have a adon raid card in thta case you need to wait a little after the bios screen and there will be a bios screen for tha raid card as well.

SuperMicro superserver 6013P-i Windows 2003 After building power issues, this server constantly restarts. It gets to the windows screen for 10 seconds, then a blue screen flashes so quickly i can't even...

Hello here is the homepage:

Blue screen of death, means you have a bad driver or a system file.
I think the hard drive, is failing.
This is probably why, you can`t start in failsafe mode either.
But do check the ram modules, for fault aswell.

Good luck

Hi We have a Powermac G4 (mirrored drive doors) with dual 887MHz processor and 2 hard drives. running MacOS X10.4.11 Graphics NVISIA AT4 MX Pro AGP (DVI &ADC) the second/slave hard drive has an image...

Sounds like the hard drive may be on it's last leg. You're going to need an OS on a second disc if you're not able to launch from the existing one.
If you can get the Mac OS disc dvd, you can start up your computer while holding down the C key and it will launch on the DVD system and you can install the system software onto a new drive (or your second existing drive).
Once the computer starts up normally on the other drive, you may be able to access the failing drive and pull files... it may take a while and stop alot but you may be able to save it.

Hard drive from gateway solo pro 40 gig will it work in toshiba

I'm pretty sure it will. The only thing is that Gateways of that generationn used a custom connector which plugs onto the hard disks standard IDE / ATA connector.Just pull this extra connector off and you can use the disk in any machine.
Also ,Toshiba used similar adapters,so if Toshiba's using one on your model,then you'll need to palce the toshiba adapter onto the hard disk from your Gateway. You may also have to go into your BIOS ,and make sure the BIOS recognizes the disk if your BIOS isn't already set to "auto detect".
