Question about Quantum Fireball Lct20 (QML30000LD-A) 30 GB Hard Drive

Quantum fireball LCT 15

I need to create backup harddrive for old IBM cpu. It has a quantum fireball
#QML15000LC-A hardrive (15GB ) that has been set up as 10.1 GB
( IBM P/N 19K1552 ). I have a spare 15000LC-A drive , but can't find a way to convert it to the 10.1GB setup. Have tried ghosting the drive and fdisk.
Is there anyway to reformat drive to duplicate 19K1552 setup?

Quite honestly the best harddrive cloning/imaging software is EZgig.
I use it all the times on older machines and branded machines where they have a hidden recovery partition. If you run EZgig in advanced mode it will duplicate the original harddrive for you right down to setting up the partitions.
The best way to do it in your situation would be to load EZgig on to an XP machine and slave the original and then backup harddrives to the XP machine.
Here is a link to the Acronis True Image download (same software as EZgig) this is a fifteen day free trial.

Problem putting a 30 gig quantum lct 15 3.5"series as a slave


Did you switch the jumper config back to Master or CableSelect before trying to install them as a single drive? Also check the Maxtor website, (they owned Quantum too), for the correct jumper settings. Some of these drives (like the Quantum Fireball lct series) need TWO jumpers not just one.That was the trick that fixed mine from not being recognized by the Bios or the Windows setup disk....I got it used with only a single jumper, but it needed two to put it Cable Select mode.

Quantium 10.2 gb fireball CX10A011 specs. ie sectors, mode, etc.


The specifications to enter the information manually, are on top of the harddrive. Kind of hard to discern, huh? That's because harddrive sizes from 6.4GB through 20.4GB are listed on top.
C/H/S = Cylinders/Heads/Sectors
The Quantum Fireball CX10A011 hardrive is a 10.2GB harddrive.
You will see -> C/H/S....10.2 - 16383/16/63 on top.

That is ,
16,383 Cylinders
16 Heads
63 Sectors

As for the 40GB model, it should be similar. If not, come back and post.

Having trouble using it as a solo harddrive in newer computer


Hi,

When Windows (XP?) was installed in the Quantum Fireball LCT1520 of the old Compaq Presario, the OS was married to the hardware specifically the motherboard/chipset. When it was removed and transplanted to the newer PC, the OS would be looking for the old hardware settings/configuration and since the new PC has a different motherboard and therefore cannot find the old hardware, it would loop/reboot continuously and/or BSODs.

One method of getting the old HD to work in the new PC is to do a clean/new install of the OS.

If for some reason you prefer to use the old OS in the old HD with its settings/configuration, you can try to do a repair/re-install. The procedure is similar to installing a clean/new OS except that you should opt for the 2nd repair choice (not the R or first repair option). This should retain most if not all of your old applications/settings while installing new Windows files.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
