Installing an Internal Hard Disk Drive
Models that have one hard disk drive are equipped with an available bay
to hold an additional 3.5-inch hard disk drive. Your system can support
ATA-33, ATA-66 or ATA-100 hard disk drives. Sony recommends an
ATA-100 hard disk drive to take full advantage of the system's features.
The drive you install must not require front panel access. The hard disk
drive access light blinks when either internal drive is active.
Before opening the system unit, save and close all open files, exit all open
applications, turn off the power to all attached peripheral devices, shut
down the computer, and unplug the power cord.
Configure the jumpers on the new drive as a slave device (see your
new drive's documentation for configuration instructions).
Remove the side panel (see
Upgrading and Maintaining Components
"Removing the Side Panel"
on page 24).
