Using the Cable-Select Feature with Parallel ATA
Optional drives are available from HP in kits that include a special drive cable. The
configuration of the drive employs a cable-select feature that identifies the drive as
device 0 (primary drive) or device 1 (secondary drive).
Device 1 is the drive connected to the cable's middle connector. Device 0 is the drive
connected to the cable's end connector (applies only to 80-conductor ATA cables).
"Guidelines for Installing PATA Drives"
HP hard drives ship with jumpers preset to cable-select mode; therefore, no jumper
setting changes on the existing or optional drives are required. If you purchase a
third-party hard drive, refer to the documentation included with the kit to ensure
proper installation and configuration of cables.
If installing a second device on the primary controller, you must use an 80-conductor
PATA cable for optimal performance. This cable is standard on select models.
