IX4 - 300 d add HARD drive

I bought an IX4 - 300 d without hard disk and first I install a Raid 0 with 2x1To HDD. Now I add a new 1 to HDD and change for Raid 5, the ix4 recognize my new HARD drive and show TB of space in the State of the system, buy I can't use this space...
The IX - 4 d 300 does not use that extra space.

Any idea?



Readers need to be of the same manufacturer, otherwise the unit can accept them. This is because having discs with different specifications can cause problems with the RAID.

  • Add hard drive to the Pavilion e9240f

    Can I add another internal hard drive to my HP Pavilion e9240f that works under Windows 7 64-bit?  I'm looking to acquire another "Western Digital 1 TB Caviar Green SATA Intellipower 32 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive WD10EADS" to complete the original, but I need to know if a drive location and connectivity is available for the disc.  I took a peek inside the case and there seems to be available, but I want to be sure before venturing forward.  In addition the original hard drive, my PC has 2 CD/DVD players.


    I have the same case with my HP e9280t and it is supplied for two hard disks.  You will need a SATA data cable.  The motherboard has six SATA ports, so you won't have to question to find an empty SATA port.

    The specifications for the Commission on the motherboard shows SATA I and SATA II ports.  You should be OK with the SATA III disc as I have not seen any problems with SATA III drives on SATA II ports.  I've seen some laptops have problems with SATA III SSD on SATA channels.

    Check with Western Digital and see if you need to apply an update to the firmware on the hard disk.  I see that HP has a firmware for this drive, but I don't know if it will work on your particular WD drive.

    Be sure to do a full format on the hard drive.

  • Problems with the PX1267E - 1 32 300 GB external HARD drive

    I got the toshiba (px1267E - 1 32) (300 GB external usb drive)
    At some point I plugged the usb taken in upside down (for a bad reason he did) and of course, it did not work.
    Hmm, I thought that is burned.

    But when is reconnected it quickly he was again detected only on mode slow usb 1.1. I guessed the drive inside was a standard drive, so I removed the drive from the case but. When I put in a different usb transmission case, it is detected and also the correct size (although its more than 200 MB). But it is not formatted.

    I gues the chip of the original envelope has a kind of special way of partitioning. But the data is still on the disk and if I connect it to the orriginal chip sound as good. But still the speed slow usb. Is there a way to read the data by using some kind of software? I save the data and put the disc in another usb enclosure.
    So, to make it short.

    I have a disc to work partially because the usb controller is a little broken (speed slow usb 1.1)
    I tried to read the disc by using the IDE or another external case usb, but windows does not include the partitioning.

    I need to backup data, but need to type SME software so I can unzip the partition.
    PS its not passworded I never put a password on it.

    I hope someone can help me


    > I guess the chip of the original envelope has some kind of special way of partitioning.
    It s no matter what chip it is. This has nothing to do with the partitions on the HARD disk.
    External USB controller can be IDE or SATA controller.

    You said that the external HARD drive has been recognized
    > When I put in a different usb transmission case, that it is detected and also the right size

    I put t understand how the external HARD drive has been recognized by the OS, but generally you should see it in disk management.
    We could also see which partitions are created.

  • How to add hard drive for HP Envy Phoenix 810-135qe CTO.

    My previous Pavalion motherboard failed and I ordered the current desktop.  I have the hard drive of the defective system.  He had the same operating system, windows 7, 64 bit, like this again.  I know some information about adding HDD to envy again.  No info on the motherboard or connections.  P5 and P6 power connectors are avilable for additional hard disks.  I see there are some open sata connectors on the motherboard, but need more info and direction on which one to use, or if things do, etc..  before I add the hard drive.

    Use any header open SATA on the motherboard that you want to use. As long as you don't make changes to the current boot order in the BIOS and save the changes, it will not count.

  • HP Pavilion PC 13-p120nr x 2 - Add hard drive

    Have a new PC HP Pavilion of the 13-p120nr x 2-4 GB of RAM (chip of DMM3 RAM 8 GB already on the way), with 64 GB SSD.

    Issues related to the:

    -Can I add a HD if it did not come with one initially? (slim model? or a SSD HD as with other models split X 2?)

    -True IF, what guidance for HP kit? (for the HD or HD SSD? Estimated costs for the HD, Kit, or both?

    -Kit drive HARD HP includes the hard drive, or is it just some kind of support for the reader?

    -Is simply an addition of 'plug and play' (by simply taking the back off, install the support and HD in him plugging in and pressing power WE?) Technically not incompetent, but not a nerd from unix/linux/.NET of power or the other.

    -(More stupid Q no doubt) addition HD works in parallel with the memory of the State solid 64 GB already installed? Or does it come to the top as a drive "E:" or "X:" or something else?

    Best regards to all, thank you in advance for reading and answers. See you soon! Bob W, Bristol, RI, USA.

    Geez - Noone has information about this X 2 things? Or is it noone has anything on this particular model (13-p120nr x 2 PC)? Anyone? Thoughts? (or less suggestions on where to find suite learn more?)

    Hello BobW-Bristol-Rl

    I understand that you are trying to update your 13-p120m x 2 HP Pavilion PC and deals with the requirements for adding a SSD HD or HARD drive? Here I quote the User Guide for your laptop "for the additional capacity or features, connect an external drive (sold separately), such as an optical drive or a hard disk, or insert a card directly from your phone or your camera.» This information has been retrieved from page 50 of your user manual.

    As well as the manual says to your laptop, it's that you cannot add a second internal hard drive, but you can add external references those. I myself have 2 drives external hard one that I use as a return to the top of the storage device and the other as another operating system on it.

    Now if you are looking to replace your current SSD, I found nothing which limit the size or who says that you can't switch the internal SSD flash disk. I am including the Guide of Installation SSD HP Upgrade Kit for you to look at and see if it is an option for you.

    One last note, if you are inexperienced in this kind of replacement I wouldn't recommend what to do yourself. Local computer repair shops may charge you to do, but you know it's done properly, and it is not as expensive as replacing the entire notebook.

    I hope I answered your questions and wish you good luck. Thanks for posting on the HP Forums. Have a great day!

  • 600 SATA or SATA 300 to replace hard drive for CTOs dv6-3100


    My laptop has been giving a "SMART test failed" message for the past few days and I have copied all the data on my external hard drive. My current hard drive is a Samsung HM640JJ. I noticed that there are SATA-300 interface. I think of buying:


    This WD drive has a SATA-600 interface. Will this work in my laptop?

    Thank you!


    Hi Anand

    SATA III drives will give you only the 6 GB/s speeds in laptops which have motherboards that support, otherwise only default to 3 Gb/s drive. But it will certainly work with a slight increase in performance for your laptop. WD Black you have chosen is a good.

  • You want to add hard drive XP on my Vista computer.

    I have Vista on my computer and you want to add XP to use an old program. The XP is on a computer sooner I could add the drive to the computer later?

    Someone said I need to partition the HD on the Vista machine and install XP on it. That doesn't seem to be difficult to achieve. Remember - this is a public forum so never post private information such as numbers of mail or telephone!


    • You have problems with programs
    • Error messages
    • Recent changes to your computer
    • What you have already tried to solve the problem

    Come on first, site of the manufacturer of your computer, check to see if your model computer has XP drivers available for it...

    If the XP drivers are not available for your model, forget the idea.



    N °

    Installing XP will have different drivers from the motherboard installed on the old hard drive; so it would probably not start.

    It would take a clean install (if XP drivers are available for your newer computer), according to the XP license:

    If XP was preinstalled on your computer, it is classified as an OEM license and is not transferable.

    The license of XP OEM is related to the original computer it is installed on and dies with the computer.
    You cannot transfer it to another computer/laptop

    If a license of XP at retail, you can transfer it to another computer/laptop.
    But it can only be installed on one computer at a time.

    A single license is a single Installation.


    Try this instead:


    If this is not Vista compatible, read the info on the link above.
    It works for some programs, but not all.

    This applies to software programs, NOT hardware drivers.


    If the above does not work:


    Virtual PC 2007

    Download the full version of Microsoft Virtual PC 2007.

    Buy and install a Windows operating system earlier (XP, Windows 2000) in the above Virtual Machine and try to run your program in that.

  • Add hard drive VCSA 5.5 to the data store

    I do the jump for especially vsphere client of web & VCSA 5.5 to change settings on a virtual machine on a host in a data center. The host has 2 data warehouses. The virtual machine has 1 hard disk assigned to datastore1. I go to add HDD to VM but can't find where datastore2 go through them.

    Non-Web client Vsphere 5.1 has allowed the addition of material. The wizard showed a location-> specify a cluster datastore or datstore. And then go to datastore2.

    If you have any information leading to the resolution of this problem, I got thank you.

    So here's what I have... Windows 7 - & gt; VMware Server 2.0 - & gt; Windows Home Server virtual machine

    Trying to add additional hard disks, see just plugged and windows 7 (host), but when I try to add a drive to the virtual computer it shows me only the available pool from the original hard drive... Im sure that I add these drives to the host via the applet web but just can't figure out how? If anyone can help... thx!

    Looks like you need to add a new data store to take advantage of the space on these new readers. Ensure that any data store that you add is available when the VMware services beginning, like at the start, especially if you have virtual computers autostart stored on them.

  • Add hard drive to 5 k iMac

    So I just recently in the last month to buy a new iMac 5 k 1 TB model fusion mac and everything is good, but I should of went with the model 2 TB. My question is if I want to change the HD Apple box do or am I better go outside to the main drive and start with that?

    Apple will not change on the internal HD. If the computer is less than 14 days old and you bought Apple directly then you can return it for a reason any. Otherwise, you will need to get external hard drive to store your data on. If you decide to get a bootable SMT and to use it as your boot drive, then you should also get a Thunderbolt housing, otherwise the start-up will be slow.

  • Add hard drive to the media center m7160n

    I added a western digital 500 GB hard drive in my hp media center m7160, no problem physically. Dosen't os find the new disk, while managing the set - up and device see. the device manager says that it works correctly, but that it was not initalized. question: How can I initialize it? Thanks a lot, well being, peace.                       DP


    You may need to format the new HARD drive - try the following.

    If you are running Windows XP, see the guide on the following link.


    For Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, follow these steps.

    Hold down the Windows key and press R.  In the run box, type compmgmt.msc , and then press ENTER.  Click disk management in the left pane and let readers load upward.  Right-click on your new HARD drive and select Format to start the wizard.  Windows assigns a Volume Label, so if you're happy with it, just leave the default.  File system is NTFS.  Allocation unit size must be left by default.  Select the option to perform a quick format if it is not already done.  Leave all the other default settings, and then click Ok, and then Ok to start the process.

    Once this done, your new HARD disk should now appear when you look under the computer.

    Kind regards

  • PowerEdge R610 add hard drives to Hyper-V Server 2008 r2 PERC6i

    I have:

    PowerEdge R610 PERC 6i

    3 x 146 GB SAS RAID 5

    OS: Hyper-v Server 2008 r2

    I just added three more 146 GB SAS drives

    How to expand the RAID 5 from there?

    I was reading up on managing open but have not seen a clear passage until you get it the best way to operate.  Thanks in advance.

    In OMSA, go to storage, PERC, virtual disks and select Reconfigure in the drop-down list of tasks available for your RAID 5.  It will start a wizard, through the addition of the new drives in your RAID 5.

    Physical disks must show as the first LOAN (if the display of Foreign Affairs, which must be cleared before you can do anything - storage, PERC, Information/Configuration, foreign/erase in the menu drop-down for the controller).

  • Adding hard drives for servers

    We have two HP ProLiant DL380 G6 servers, each in a RAID 5 with ESX 4 configuration.  We use vSphere on these two servers, and the controller of vSphere is 4.1.

    This is a test environment, so it is not necessary to have the installation faster and more reliable.  More space most of the time is the key.

    We would like to add more hard drives:

    1. can you just connect the hard drives in the existing bays and let the RAID controller (restriping, etc.)?

    2 if not, is our only option (if we want to keep the current VM) to back up the existing configuration of vSphere, add hard drives and rebuild the RAID array and then retrieve the data from the backup?

    3. If the backup is the way forward, what recommendations do you have for vSphere backup?  Less expensive would be the way to go here (what software and what external hard drive?).

    4. can you create a single Bay RAID5 on two servers instead of two RAID5 arrays separated? (I don't like this option because it only will give us 300 GB more space with less reliability, but is requested)

    I searched a bit on this site and did not see much on this particular confuguration, so any help would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    1. you can add additional disks to a RAID set, you can even change the level of RAID (if necessary) using the Configuration utility of the table (on the SmartStart CD) However, these functions are generally available on the RAID controller with BBWC (battery buffer cache).

    2. you should always have a backup!

    3. you can take a look at ghettoVCB

    4. No, you can not extend the RAID on two physical servers.
