HP ProDesk 600 G1 Pc
Posted on 2014-01-28
Hi, a customer bought a new HP ProDesk 600 G1 Tower Pc , Pc shipped with a 500GB Sata Drive. They want to add a second 500GB Sata Drive to setup in a Mirror using the onboard raid.
They bought a Seagate 500GB Sata drive , however when they install the Second Drive the Bios gives an IDE Error and is not recognized in either the BIOS or in Windows 7. They have tried several new 500GB Drives. Also the Raid option is not available in the BIOS.
They then tried an original HP 500GB Sata Drive from another HP ProDesk 600 G1 and that Drive is recognized in the BIOS and Windows 7 , and the Raid option is available in the BIOS
Is this a new HP setup where you can only use Original HP Drives or something else ?
