    4.5 Drive Capacities The combination of the file system and the operating system used in the computer determines the maximum usable size of a drive partition. A drive partition is the largest segment of a drive that may be properly accessed by the operating system. A single hard drive may therefore be subdivided into a number of unique drive partitions in order to make use of all of its space.

    SCSI Devices 68-pin SCSI controllers require a 53 inch maximum length-twisted pair, LVD cable with built-in terminator, maximum of 5 drives with a minimum driving spacing of 5.25 inches. Every SCSI chain or circuit must be terminated (closed) at both ends. Some system boards have both ends of the SCSI cable connected to, and terminated by, the system board.

  • Page 72: Electrostatic Discharge Information

    Identifying the Chassis, Routine Care, and Disassembly Preparation Electrostatic Discharge Information A sudden discharge of static electricity from your finger or other conductor can destroy static-sensitive devices or microcircuitry. Often the spark is neither felt nor heard, but damage occurs. An electronic device exposed to electrostatic discharge (ESD) may not appear to be affected at all and can work perfectly throughout a normal cycle.
  • Page 73: Preventing Electrostatic Damage To Equipment

    7.2.2 Preventing Electrostatic Damage to Equipment Many electronic components are sensitive to ESD. Circuitry design and structure determine the degree of sensitivity. The following packaging and grounding precautions are necessary to prevent damage to electric components and accessories. To avoid hand contact, transport products in static-safe containers such as tubes, bags, or boxes.

The hp workstation xw6000 systems may also be upgraded by adding a second processor to the system board. 12.2.1 Preparing the System for Processor Removal Removal of a processor requires first separating the heatsink from the processor, which are bonded together with a compound.
  • Page 109 To warm up the heatsink/processor assembly: 1. Turn on the workstation and allow the operating system to boot and the “desktop” to appear. The system requires approximately four to eight minutes of running time for the primary heatsink/processor assembly to reach the temperature required for loosening the bond between the heatsink and processor.
