Adding a second hard disk drive
MS660 OWNER'S HANDBOOK
If the processor is misaligned it will not go into the socket, and any
attempt to force it will damage the processor, or the socket, or both
Move the securing lever to the locked position. Apply just
enough pressure to overcome the resistance offered by the lever.
If necessary, place the heat sink into position on top of the new
processor. The vanes of the heat sink must be aligned with the
airflow from the fan in front of the processor. Refit the clip
that secures the heat sink to the processor.
You will need to adjust the processor speed selection jumpers
on the motherboard. See the chapter 'System motherboard' for
more information about locating and adjusting jumper
If necessary replace the expansion cards you removed earlier.
Replace the system panels.
Your computer can support more than one IDE hard disk drive. A
second hard drive can be fitted directly above the existing one if
required. Depending on the new drives mechanical size, the adapter
plate fitted in the drive bay, for the smaller type of hard drive, may
need to be removed.
Once fitted the drive will require preparation in order to write or
read from it. Consult your software guide and Windows 95 help for
information on partitioning and formatting hard drives. DO NOT
attempt to alter the partition information on your existing drive as
this will completely destroy all information held on the drive.
If you do not feel confident about the procedure you could have
your supplier or service organisation complete it for you.

manufacturers and all of our upgrade parts are guaranteed. The quality
or compatibility of drives obtained from any other source cannot be
guaranteed. Any damage caused by fitting non approved drives will not
be covered by the system warranty.
