Alternative to 45M disk?

Alternative to 45M disk?

Alternative to 45M disk?

What options do I have for a F9600vs system with a bad hard drive? The only thing I can find is refurbished one's for $3200. Hate to loose the whole system over what should be a $50 part.

RE: Alternative to 45M disk?

what type of hard drive is it? some hard drives are not available. some can be replaced on the fly. You can't buy a drive off the street there is special formattng of the drive. Also what type of system (VS,ES,MS,M,XL) and version of software.

RE: Alternative to 45M disk?

Thanks for the response. It is a VS system. It currently has release 10 on it. The following are the specs I show for the drive:
Part Number:  E15B0135C001  
Product Name:  Fujitsu FMUL H/D 45MB
Mfr. & System:  Fujitsu F9600
Not 100% sure that the drive is the problem, but I am having a hard time getting it to reboot. The 1 time it did reboot it came up with a critical error - instructed to restore the system.

RE: Alternative to 45M disk?

I'm very suprised that you got that many years out of that hard drive! That was manufactored 1992 to about 1994(5)ish.
You are going to need a back-up on the system. Not only do you need a hard drive, you need a new hard disk controller.
