Question about HP Pavilion Elite M9150F Desktop PC
I have an hp Pavilion Elite m1950f. I am running a sata raid splitting two 360GB drives. i have a Western Digital 1.5 tb 32MB SATA-3G drive ready to install. how do I install it and will my hp automatically identify a new drive and update the raid to it? Then can I install another one so that I have exactly the same massive drives to protect all my files in raid? thanks in advance I am newbie to this stuff and paranoid as it is for my business computer and don't want to mess it up. Can't go anymore days with problems and not working in and on the business. Love/hate technology paranoid to lose anything now. patrick.

No OS stated.
if it was working now, we'd not do any of that, take no data risk.
why risk it?
we'd build new machine, and the clone it over. (all the ways ,lots)
then you unplug this old dog and put the new one online.
after testing it fully, sure.
that gets ride of the hate stuff, no? doing it right?
no idea at all the system usage
on a DOMAIN at work
or a server behind a fire wall
or a server to the web with web content?
a gaming server at home
a video server at home.
or?????? i can go here like 100 pages of ideas.....
seems to me that be first to know.
or just a account payable server in Finance office.
that raid controller must be learned.
did you read the full book on it yet
that be first first if doing this the hard way.
all such controllers have there own set of rules.
some are very smart can just plug in a drive and it syncs.
then add or replace more, slowly and with monitors running
from HP to make sure its ok as you go.
Like done on huge proliant servers.
who's RAID is it
MS pure software raid (sux)
on board STAT raid chip of some kind. (no full service tag shown)
or adding major top raid controller, (best of best this is)
if i search HP.com for your DT, puter is a dead product.
so can not read you manual for you,
the word raid is missing in all manuals there.
so I must be using the wrong model number
try going to HP.com
the tell HP your full tag data, and then see if its the model
with RAID< if yes,the books now match your rig.
then read the manual on the rules for RAID
i bet you they SUX.
most do on cheap raid controllers. its not high end and is
the pathway to H3LL of you guess.
best i can find is not at HP but the chip it has, Intel ICH9R
id talk the these guys on that,
the limits are in the HP BIOS rom too.
more links, gee ask HP.cOM forum>?
here is a web search
