SATA drive into SAS drive - can I change in Dell Precision system?
Posted on 2013-12-18
We have a Dell precision, which we think has a hard drive problem (intermittent blue screens - even from safe mode, and it failed the Dell diagnostic on one of the hard drive tests once out of two runs)
I opened it up and noticed that although a SCSI drive, it actually had an adaptor that converts SATA connectors into a SCSI connector.
With that in mind, can I just plug a SATA drive into it and use that instead?
I just wonder though as I assume there is some kind of SCSI controller present, will it confuse the system if I plug in a SATA drive?
Thanks in advance.
