Installation of SCSI HD

1. Introduction

Installing a SCSI HD - Page 1

Source: Maxtor

- Introduction

The five steps to installing a SCSI hard drive are;

  1. Setting the jumper configuration
  2. Connect the Data cable
  3. Connect the Power cable
  4. Define drive parameters at the SCSI Host Adapter. (default or automatic choices are best)
  5. Partitioning and formatting.

Before you begin, you must remove static electricity. This can be avoided by simply touching the metal case of your PC. You must have the computer plugged-in for this to be effective.

- Jumper Configuration

All SCSI devices inlcude 3 jumpers in order to define the drive's SCSI ID string. Please refear to your SCSI hard disk manual for setting the proper jumper ID. If case 2 devices have the same ID, during boot-up process, the system will not detect them (and probably will not proceed). On a Quantum SCSI drive there are two locations for drive options. Most Quantum SCSI drives have an option connector at the front and back of the drive. Use only one jumper option connector and be sure to orient the jumpers correctly.


Note: ID 7 is normally used by the SCSI Host Adapter.

Each SCSI device on the bus must have a unique SCSI ID number. The drive can be configured for SCSI ID numbers that range from 0 through 15. Set the SCSI ID for the drive at the 12-pin Option connector or the 28-pin Secondary Option connector. Jumper locations are shown. Refer to your system or SCSI Host Adapter documentation for recommendations about assigning SCSI ID numbers for your specific system.
