Put the hard disk in, allow the OS to identify it, format the drive and you'll be all set.

    Yes. Just pop it in, and have the disk formatted when it gets identified.

Can i fix a maxtor drive 8j073l002 to a z 400 workstastion


I would get a copy of the specs from HP's website (download is
free) and see if there is an option for ANY " SCSI" drive or maybe
a "converter" for SCSI to IDE or SATA conversions. SCSI is NOT
a standard for most consumer/business applications. Usually used
in equipment designed for; high end graphics and video editing use
due to complex nature. To convert video to digital - requires a process
called "rendering" which makes the "new" format read-able by standard equipment. The HP Z400 unit - might NOT have that option.
An email to HP tech support ...may get your answer faster.

I was running 2 scsi drives in a raid 0. One drive failed, how can i retrieve the files off the the still working drive, and can i?


Hi there, Sorry to break the bad news, but when one hard drive fails in a RAID 0 configuration, all data is lost. Your only chance is to take it to a professional data recovery center, where you could be charged hundreds, or thousands of dollars for a data restore. Seagate will do these recoveries for you. RAID 0 has no redundancy, unfortunately. Sorry about that, Alex

I have IBM eServer with ServeRaid-7K on board controller and have 3 SCSI 73GB hard drives configured in RAID-5 array. Hard Drives are running critically low on space and I bought 3 300GB scsi Ultra320 hard...


First, buy an external storage device, at least 80GB (although it's currently difficult to find any _smaller_ size!) and make a file-by-file, folder-by-folder, backup of your 73GB of "data".

Second, buy another external storage device, and do a Google-search for "drive image freeware".
Pick one of those applications, and do a "image" backup to this second external storage device.

Third, disconnect the 3 "old" drives, carefully label them, and set them aside.

Fourth, connect the 3 "new" drives, delete the old RAID-5 array definition,
and create a new RAID-5 array definition.

Fifth, do an "image restore" from the second external storage device to the new array.

If you have any problems, all you need to do to "back-out" is to:
* disconnect the "new" drives
* reconnect the "old" drives
* delete the "new" array definition
* redefine the "old" array definition

and you're back to the "old" configuration.

Regarding Adding Higher Configuaration HDD Into Exisisting Raid 5


In raid 5 yes you can, yet you won't use the ful hard drive, the system will take only 73GB because that's the smallest HD in your array.

Just, of course, follow the indications for your specific RAID hardware/software about how to add a new HD to it:

Trying to connect a SCSI zip drive to a Dell OptiPlex GX1 400MHz and want to install a new Segate Barr 40Gig thers only 1 bay


In order to use the SCSI zip drive, you'll need a Windows 98 driver for that drive. Go to the manufacturer's website to download the driver; if there isn't a Windows 98 driver available, that device may not be compatible with Windows 98.

Would a SCSI disk and a IDE disk work together?


This solution works on WIN98 and I don?t see a reason why it wont work on you If there is something that you were missing you might want to check with anther expert. This solution is a little complex so I hope ill be able to explain it well enough: 1. Make a boot disk so u can format and install windows. 2. Define the new HD as MASTER and hook it up to "primary IDE" 3. Disconnect the SCSI and pull the board out. 4. Reset the comp from the boot disk u made (HD is connected) 5. Get in "bios settings" and make sure that the new HD is defined as "primary drive" In the 1st IDE 6. Now, perform a FDisk on the new HD, define partitions, do a reset and format the HD Install the operating system you wish to have, make sure it works well. 7. install the SCSI board and its HD make anther reset. 8. now the comp is supposed to make boot and recognize the SCSI, it is possible that you will need to define your system configurations but for that, regretfully, I cannot guide you Although this is not necessarily have to happen. Good luck

SCSI and IDE HDs, can they work together?


This next solution is viable in win 98, and I don?t see any reason why it shouldn?t work for you too. If you know of anything I?m missing you should consult someone else. The solution is slightly complex, so I hope I can explain it properly: 1. Create a startup disk so you can format and install windows. 2. Set the new HD as master and connect it to Primary IDE. 3. Disconnect the SCSI and remove it. 4. Restart the computer with the disk you created (with the new HD connected). 5. Go to the Bios settings in order to make sure that the computer does recognize the new HD as the primary drive in the first IDE. 6. Now, FDisk the new HD, set the partitions, restart and format it. Install the OS and make sure it is working properly. 7. Insert the SCSI and restart again. 8. At this stage the computer would reboot into the IDE and see the SCSI/ You may have to change something in the OS settings for that, but I don?t know where. Good luck.
