External floppy drive versus internal floppy drive on server
Posted on 2007-08-06
I would like to add a floppy disk to my server, which is an HP Proliant ML 110 G4. I found a few internal floppy drives on the Internet, but then I was concerned they wouldn't be compatible even though they were made (supposedly) by HP.
So, I called HP, and the tech recommended a floppy drive which was compatible, but it was a USB external floppy drive. He said you could boot from it, but I am not sure the USB ports would work correctly during boot up.
Is it OK to get the external drive.He recommended Model: DC361B
Should I go with an internal floppy disk and, if so, where can I get one that I know is compatible with my server? My guess is they would all pretty much be, but I want to make sure it fits properly.
