In this case you would have to...

1) preformat the drive

2) make it bootable in DOS

3) copy the CD contents to the drive

4) boot the target computer with the drive and run WINNT.EXE in the I386 directory to start the install.

*OR*

1) preformat the drive

2) copy the CD contents to the drive.

3) put the drive in the target computer and boot it from a DOS bootable floppy.

4) run WINNT.EXE in the I386 directory to start the install.

Computer not picking up IBM Travelstar hard drive


The warranty on any '20GB' disk-drive ended _years_ ago.

It is time to "retire" that disk-drive -- take a hammer to it, so that any data files on it will _never_ be able to accessed by the F.B.I.,
and buy a new disk-drive.

I HAVE LAPTOP IBM THINKPAD T30 AND I WANT TO CONNECT HARD DISK 80GB OR MORE


  • Supported HDD thickness:
    • 12.5 mm for systems without the touch pad
    • 9.5mm for systems with the touch pad
  • Standard 20GB, 40GB, 60GB HDD sizes.
    Note:
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as marketing option part number 08K9688 has a height of 12.5mm and will not fit in the HDD slot of the systems with the touch pad installed. For these systems, it is only supported via the ThinkPad 2nd HDD Adapter for the Ultrabay 2000.
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as replacement service part number 08K9833 is 9.5mm.
  • Supports one additional HDD which can be used concurrently to offer expanded storage utilizing the Ultrabay 2000
  • S.M.A.R.T technology to issue an alert if a hardware failure is pending
  • ATA Bus Interface
  • 4200 or 5400 rpm
  • Although you can upgrade the HDD, it is not designed to be removed and reinserted on a regular basis. Repeated and frequent removal, for purposes other than to upgrade for greater capacity, can cause damage to the system. The Ultrabay 2000 HDD adapter is designed to provide this flexibility with a second HDD in the Ultrabay 2000 IBM says. I say if the OS recognises it and so does the BIOS, you're good. good luck, hope this helps.-jmattes p.s. I found this info on: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-42218.html
