Serial and Parallel ATA Drive Guidelines and Features

4.2.3 PATA Cable Layout

The faces of industry-standard cable connectors are color-coded for easy recognition:
System board connector = blue face
Device 0 connector = black face
Device 1 connector = gray face
The color code of an industry-standard cable is applicable only if the drive's jumper is in the
cable-select position.
Single-Drive Cable
Two-Drive Cable
On a two-drive cable, the Drive/Device 0 connector is always the farthest one from the system
board connector and the Drive/Device 1 connector is always the closest to the system board
connector.
Some cables may be labeled "Drive 0" instead of "Device 0" and "Drive 1" instead of
"Device 1".

4.3 PATA Drive Installation Guidelines

Ä
CAUTION: HP only supports a PATA hard drive in SATA systems when the PATA hard drive is used in
a MultiBay device.
This computer system board has one Parallel ATA (PATA) channel.
The channel can have up to two devices attached to it. All drives are connected to a channel
using an industry-standard 80-conductor cable.
The industry standard 1.44 MB diskette drive has its own separate channel and is not included as
a part of the maximum four drives.
