Hard Disk Jumper Question on Maxtor IDE as second disk

Hard Disk Jumper Question on Maxtor IDE as second disk

Post by Erik Kleinbussi » Thu, 02 Feb 1995 08:17:59

I just picked up a new system and wanted to add my old Maxtor
7213AT (203Mb) as a second IDE disk. Since I have no documentation
I was wondering if someone out there had run this drive as a 2nd
disk. Is there a jumper to set in order to get this drive to act like
a second disk?

The current system is a packard bell pentium system with dual IDE
connectors, one for standard IDE, one for PCI IDE. The primary drive
is a seagate 1080Mb running off the PCI connector. The docs seem to
indicate that each connector can handle two disks.

1. Ultra 5 IDE hard disks - can I use any PC hard disk?

I need to buy a bigger hard disk for my Ultra 5.  It has a 9.1GB disk at
present and I want to ADD aonther disk.  I've seen some disks out of a newer
U5 and they're 20GB Seagate Barracuda ATAII's.  I believe this is a regular
disk used in many x86 PC's.  Can I buy any popular x86 hard disk and use
that?  Is there a size limit?  I'm looking at buying a 40GB disk for my
Ultra 5.  Are there PROM limitations like the PC has (i.e. 8GB disk size
