Does anyone know if there is an internal PCI-express card on the market with SATA-connections where you could put your old 3.5'' HDDs ? There are a lot of SSDs on the market for this purpose, but I have some special needs.. :-)

Have an SATA adaptor to allow an SATA drive to be used in a machine intended for an IDE drive. There is a power connector that is connected to a counterpart power connector from the system board. I need a power cable to go directly to the SATA drive. Images [Click Here](https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=4AD6AABD72471DBB!6848) of my circumstance are uploaded to a Microsoft folder.

Does anyone suggest a way of getting a HP Proliant ML110 first generation server to recognise 2TB SATA hard drives? The spec sheets read it only supports storage up to around 320GB, but would ideally like to get it running without any other expense. The machine is a standard build G1 tower that I’ve bumped up the RAM to 3GB, Windows Server 2008 OS and successfully installed 2x 160GB ATA drives. This is the bit I’m stuck with; I have 2x Western Digital 2TB hard drives (model WD20EADS) that I have plugged in via a PIX SATA controller. They are …

Was hoping would be as simple as plugging it in and then setting as a slave on the BIOS... seems I was a little too optimistic. I have a new hard drive in on a clean install of Windows 7. I would like to add my old hard drive, transfer existing data from it, then format it and use it for extra storage space However, the BIOS never regognises the 2nd drive. Motherboard is ASUS Rampage 2 Extreme Both drives are Seagate Barracuda's 7200.11 (3tb & 1.5tb) New drive has Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit Old drive is on a triple …

Hey guys, I am having some issues with my PC. My main drive with my OS is SATA, as well as my DVD-RW. As of this morning, I received a "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" message when trying to turn on my computer. I checked my BIOS and the drive is not visible. I then tried to install the OS again on a new drive temporarily but my DVD-RW is not registering either. It is almost as if both SATA devices are not responding. I am using a Gigabyte motherboard with a Seagate 500GB hard drive …

Hello I have a company laptop (HP 8530w) with Checkpoint Pointsec HDD encryption and 32bit Vista. I want to use win7 booted from an external eSATA drive. For that to work first of all I had to remove the internal HDD, because win7 install has already fucked my system up one time (probably the MBR because the encryption never came up after I installed win7 on the external drive). Secondly I had to set SATA mode to IDE because in AHCI mode it can't be booted on this laptop. (RAID would also work but I didn't want to complicate things). …

Hello Daniweb community, Recently I bought a new harddrive. Below is a link to the manufacturer's website and the model: [url]http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.js...D&locale=en-US[/url] I connected the drive according to the instructions and then booted up my computer. The drive got detected in the BIOS so i booted up Windows. I then went to the following section: (rough translation as I run a non-english version of windows) Control Panel -> Computer administration -> disk administration There I partitioned the disk as a primary disk and formatted it. The partition received the full capacity of the drive (1397,26GB) and I selected "quick format". At …
