For any new hard disk first you have to create a partition table. Usually this is done when installing the OS. eg: for win98 you have to first create the partition in dos, format it, then run win98 setup. Now in WinXP this can be done when installing the OS. Similarly you may have to create the partition before runing UNIX setup. I Dont know the installation for UNIX. Usually the hard disk manufacturer supplies with some utility to do the partition. Like Disk Manager from Seagate.

Good day,
'

There are several component we need to consider in order for us to give you a more appropriate solution to your dilemma.

1. There are pin configuration at the back of your hard drive which can be switched from one combination to another. These pins is for boot sequencing. Try switching your hard drive pin configuration from master or slave to auto detect or IDE detect.
2. IDE cable must be inserted correctly. IDE cables have red lining on one side which indicates the proper insertion. Red Lining must be facing the red wire from the power supply cord. Try looking a closer look.

However, we need to ask you a few questions to give you a more direct answer.

My drill stopped working and emits an odor... did it short circuit? I just purchased it 2 days ago, is there anything I can do to fix it?


If it was new a couple of days ago I would take it back where I bought it. I bought a power saw and used it once and smoke came out the motor. I took it back and they gave me a replacement.

1 logical harddisk degraded, RAID Poweredge


Revert back to original configuration of hdd in your RAID setup. Boot to SCIS BIOS and double check functionality of hard drives. The error is probably telling you that Disk1 is degraded because disk 0 is failing and you removed the wrong hard drive.

Albert,

I don't really understand what you have installed.
If Vist is Vista , then you should do it on a PC, not a server.
When we install new servers with many patches , service packs , applications etc., we make ASR after each path , pack , app. This way if anything happens , we just use the ASR to put back to last wotking install. Please try that method .

Good luck ,
David
