Question about Dell OptiPlex GX150 SF PC Desktop
Could someone please tell me or direct me to an installation guide for a new hard drive in my old Dell Optiplex GX 150?
If all that you are doing is replacing the hard-drive then you only need to do the following as the Dell cases are a screwless design and only require you to:
Finally you'll need to reboot the computer and go into the BIOS to ensure that the drive is being seen and is of the correct size.
Lastly you'll need to pop in the OS CD-ROM and rebuild the system.
Note that on some of the early GX150's there was a problem with the firmware of the CD-ROM that allowed you to load the OS, reboot and then the installation would hang as the OS could not read the hardware due to an incompatibility. This can be solved by simply replacing the GX150 CD-ROM with another CD-ROM during the build and then putting the old CD-ROM back in place after the final reboot of the PC before you log on for the first time.
Hope this is of some help from a newby solution provider.
