I have a Prolient Ml330 Server with 20 GB SCSI Disk i would like to upgrade to 73.4 GB following Disk.

IBM Ultrastar "Daytona" 73LZX, 73.4 GB
Brand New! Ultra160 Wide LVD SCSI-3, 10,000 RPM, 4.7 ms seek, 4 MB cache, A/V Rated, 3.5" LP, 80 pin interface - 80 to 68 pin SCA adapter included, 90 day warranty. (IBM p/n: 07N6276)

Re: SCSI Drive for Prolient ML330

I don't see why it wouldn't be incompatible, other than it not being from HP/Compaq. That means warranty issues. So if your hard drive fails, instead of getting a replacement overnight from HP, you will be working with IBM (now Hitachi). And hope it's not over your 90day warranty --- that hurts!

So, if you don't mind that, go for it.

The BIOS does not care. You should be fine, but I would suggest using something else for the drive. These drives that are out there now, were froma large OEM production run when IBM sold out to Hitachi. THey being sold are everywhere and according to Hitachi/IBM they have no warranty.
Stick with a good Seagate like we use. lastest model. They use less power and are more reliable.

the BIOS only effects seeing HDD capacity on IDE HDD. SCSI HDD are seen by the controller.
