Hi, Maxtor 90645D3 hardrive deletion manual jumpersettings.


Basic jumper settings for Maxtor ATA Hard Drives

Thank you for purchasing your new ATA hard drive from Other World Computing! Please

review these jumper settings prior to installing your new hard drive into your computer.

You may want to review more detailed information about the installation process, or

the location and configuration of your existing internal ATA drive before proceeding.

Your manual that came with your computer can be of assistance in both of these

determinations.

A few notes about installing an ATA hard drive into your existing system:

Your existing drive is normally configured one of two ways, Master (single drive), or

Cable Select. You will want to determine this before installing your new drive, the easiest

way is to remove the existing drive from your system and visually inspect it's hard drive

jumpers. Most hard drives have a schematic either silk screened onto the case of the

drive, or the schematic is on a label near the jumper pins. If you have difficulty locating

this information, visit the hard drive manufacturer's website.

If your existing hard drive is configured as "Master", then set your new hard drive

to "Slave". If your existing drive is set for "Cable Select", then set your new drive to

"Cable Select" also. You can change the existing jumper settings on the original drive

to suit your needs, but we recommend following these instructions first to verify proper

operation of the new hard drive.

Installing jumpers on the new drive is a simple process, follow the schematic to

configure your drive.

Please note the configuration of

the internal ATA cable already

installed in your existing system.

If your internal cable is configured

differently than pictured here,

you may want to replace it before

installing a new hard drive to

achieve maximum performance.

Tip

Windows 7 will always boot to drive letter C: in multiboot configurations.


When configuring a Multi-boot configuration using Windows operating systems, you need to install Windows Versions oldest to newest on separate partitions. In doing so, Windows 7 is going to be installed to Drive D: or E: or such. In all previous versions of Windows, if you have a multi-boot configuration, the drive letter for that OS is always the same as the drive where it was installed.

Windows 7 does things a bit differently. EXAMPLE: I have 3 partitions on my hard drive. C:, D: and E:. XP on C: Vista on D: Windows 7 on E: When I boot to XP, the boot drive letter is C: When I boot to Vista, the boot drive letter is D: (Simple) Well, I learned the hard way that when you boot to Windows 7 from a partition other than C:, it will show the boot drive as C: in Windows 7 (It swaps drive letters with the boot drive and C: transparently). When you boot to the other partitons, the drive letters are as they should be and the change is only effective while booted to the Windows 7 Partition.

Invalid configuration information-please run setup program. Performing automatic IDE configuration...... how to solve this problem.. tq..


Did you install a new hard drive, CD drive or DVD drive?
When a new drive is installed it needs to be configured in the BIOS. If so you need to go into the setup (BIOS) menu and then hold down the and keys and the press the and key to re detect newly installed IDE drives.
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) refers to the interface circuit that the motherbrd uses to communicate with your hard drive, CD drive or DVD drive.

How to configure or enable hardware compression in DW065B LTO1 Drive. When trying to take backup in H/w compression mode the tape (100/200 GB Tape) is ejected.


The L&TT support ticket contains drive configuration information such as whether hardware data compression is enabled or not.
Use L&TT to pull the ticket then look in the Drive->Drive Configuration section for details.
Here's an example:
|__ Drive
||__ Data compression : Enabled
||__ Current block size : Not available
||__ Detect WORM tampering : WORM not supported
||__ Reads after WORM tampering : WORM not supported
||__ Media removal (software controlled) : Allowed
If data compression is not enabled then it is likely that it has been turned off by the backup application. Check the options in your application to ensure that software compression (done by the server) is turned off and hardware compression (done by the drive) is turned on.
Data compression can be turned on in the drive by
  • The application ( the application will usually override the drive configuration so configuring the application correctly is of prime importance)
  • Resetting the drive
  • Power cycling the drive
  • Using the L&TT Set Drive Configuration utility (use the options to enable compression -see the L&TT user guide below)
NetBackup usersCaution NetBackup will turn off hardware compression in the drive at the end of each backup, so when you look at it with Library and Tape Tools it will be off. This is actually normal for NetBackup, so please check the configuration of NetBackup to make sure that compression is configured correctly. In this case see 'Measure Compression Ratio' (go back one level) as that will show whether compression has been in operation in the drive.
Click here to download the free L&TT utility (www.hp.com/support/tapetools) - this will also access the L&TT user guide
Use the L&TT FAQ to find out how to pull a ticket.
Click here for the L&TT FAQ. (www.hp.com/support/lttfaq) Look for How do I generate a support ticket? in the contents.

I have an IBM eserver x series 255 and i just replaced the scsi drive on it but i still see the drive in failed status i want to know where in the bios do i go to configure the new drive?


If this drive is hot swappable, and it's a part of a RAID array, the RAID controller should handle the rebuild of the drive automatically. There are two easy ways to configure the new drive. 1 - reboot the server, wait for the ServerRAID BIOS to start, then press Ctrl + I (or whatever it says) to enter the mini configuration wizard. Once you're in there, you can view and configure the drive as needed. If you installed the replacement drive, and the status light of the new drive is blinking orange/amber, it probably means that the controller has begun rebuilding the array and you just have to wait. Depending on the size of the drive, and the amount of data, and the speed of your controller, rebuilding of a failed drive can take hours.

Need master slave configuration


Hello,

You should have a jumper configuration written somewhere on the front (up) side of the hard Disk ... Look there, or look just around the Pins... Look for M, S, CS (Master, Slave, Cable Select)

Can I use a WD3200AAJS as a slave drive. If so what is the jumper configuration.


Hello!
The drive you have is a SATA drive, and has no master/slave configuration as such.  There is a connector block on the back to configure other options such as spread spectrum clocking.  Normal configuration is a jumper between pins 1 and 2 (all the way on the right side, facing the back).  A picture of the other configuration options is shown below.
Hope this helps you out,
Ken

Slow transfer from SATA II (IDE) drive to 3 SATA II Drives configured as RAID (1). Drives wouldn't format until we installed the OS onto the RAID -- but it wouldn't install completely. We boot from the...


It appears you have made an error with the RAID configuration. RAID 1 is mirroring and requires an EVEN number of drives unless one is a hot spare. Also, RAID 1 is for redundancy and is slower than a single drive or RAID 0. Verify your RAID configuration and make sure you have RAID 1 and not RAID 0 or RAID 5 which can be an even or odd number of drives.

Run Compaq Array Configuration Utility


Hi Foambob,

Try all means to get a smartstart CD.
Normally new version will be able to use on older hardware , but no guarantees.
I have always found it easier to use smartstart CD auto mode.
You can also do the install and then run ntssd to update all the drivers etc., but I don't recommend it for novices. Use the auto mode , it takes longer but safely and surely.

Good luck

A larger drive should auto-configure just fine keep in mind that you may not get access to the full drive depending on how you have it all setup. In any case if there are any problems with the auto-configure you should be able to easily go into the RAID manager and tell it what you want to do with the drive.
