Is it possible - two hard drives in w510

Hello, on Lenovo specification page about w510 ( http://www.pc.ibm.com/europe/thinkpad/why/ru/wseries/thinkpad_wseries.html?ru&ru&cc=ru ) I`ve found "Жесткий диск До 2x320 ГБ RAID 0" (in English - "Hard Drive Up to 2x320 GB RAID 0") is it means that it is possible to install two hard drives? In wich specifications it is possible?
Solved!

Hi and welcome to the forum!
You need Thinkpad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay adapter to put the second HDD in W510:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-73170.html
It will work in any W510's configuration.
Hope this helps.

  • Two hard drive configuration help Windows 7 + Mac

    Hi everyone,
    So I'm planning on upgrading my early 2011 Macbook Pro 15 by adding an SSD at the expense of the optical drive. Basically, what I would like to do is to replace the current HDD with the new SSD and replace the optical drive with the HDD mounted onto an optical caddy.
    In summary:
    SSD (main HDD bay) - Mac OS Mountain Lion and Windows 7 + a few Mac/Windows applications
    HDD (optical bay) - Mac OS and Windows data files and programs
    This is possible? If so, how would I go about doing this?
    Cheers!

    Hi, I have a 13" mac pro (mid 2012) with a 500GB Apple hard drive.  I removed the optical drive and installed a drive adapter with a new SSD (500GB).  So to confirm, I have: SSD (optical bay), and HD (main bay).  I also wanted Windows via bootcamp on my machine and of course I wanted both it and my Mac OS (Mavericks) on the new SSD (to benefit from the faster drive).  Installation of Mavericks on the SSD was no problem, but Bootcamp/Windows installation constantly stalls at a black screen with flashing white cursor in the top left corner.
    The breakthrough came when I tried removing the original Apple hard drive from the main bay.  With only the SSD (running Mavericks) present in the opti-bay I was able to complete the installation of Windows/Bootcamp on my SSD.  Great right?
    Yes and no.  It's great to have both OSs running on a snappy SSD, but when I re-install the Apple HD in the main bay Windows once again stalls at the black screen with the flashing white cursor in the top left corner.
    I thought the problem might be that the computer was getting confused by having two disks each with two OSs (even though holding the Option key from start up brought me to the Boot menu where I was able to choose my OS of choice).  So I wiped the Apple HD clean, essentially making it a storage hard drive, no OSs on it.  Still wouldn't start up Windows (stalling at the black screen with flashing white cursor).  BTW Mavericks will boot from the boot menu, just not Windows.  So james1607 it's definitely possible to install Mac OS and Windows on the same SSD but so far my experience says the 2nd drive just confuses the computer re: starting up Windows.
    Removing the Apple HD from the main bay solves the issue, but that's very unsatisfying.  I want to use my Apple HD as extra storage in my computer not have it gather dust on my bookshelf.
    Obviously the Mac Pro is getting confused by having two hard drives present (when trying to start Windows).  But why?  Anyone out there with similar problem?  Solutions?  Thanks in advance!

  • How can I split a backup on two hard drives with Time Machine ?

    Back-up of my Imac with time machine is 1,3 TB. I have two 1 TB external hard drives but even if I had both as available in Time machine, it seems it doesn't allow to split the backup between the two hard drives. Any way to resolve this without buying another hard drive with more space?
    Thanks in advance

    You cannot directly split a backup. Your only option would be to open the TimeMachine preferences from System Prefs. and add things to the exclusion list for one of the backups. Then, when you go to do the other backup you would reverse the process and add everything else to the exclusion list and remove the things you had on there in the first place.
    Seems fairly intensive though when you could just go and buy a 2 or 3TB external drive and do it all in one...Black Friday is coming up

  • Computer is balky random freezes across apps. Two hard drive cleans later (their scan reveals no hard drive problems) photo shop won't work at all, magic touch mouse inoperable and their diagnoses is corrupted data? Anybody heard of this?

    Computer is balky random freezes across apps. Two hard drive cleans later (their scan reveals no hard drive problems) photo shop won't work at all, magic touch mouse inoperable and their diagnoses is corrupted data? Anybody heard of this?

    Well, yes, data does get corrupted sometimes.
    The trick is finding what data.
    By 'cleaned' are you therefor meaning that the drive has been erased and the system re-installed?
    Because that's the quickest way to deal with such a situation.
    Back up the system first of course,
    Add back 3rd party apps one at a time in case one of them is causing the problem.

  • HT1386 Ever since I had to replace my PC hard drive, my outlook contacts and calendar no longer sync.  It acts like it's syncing, but it isn't.  I now have two hard drives - c and g, but I'm pretty sure the Outlook data is still on c.  Any other ideas?

    Hello - I just had to replace the hard drive on my pc, and now my Outlook calendar and contacts won't sync to my iphone 5s.  I ended up getting two hard drives (C and G), so I'm afraid that might have something to do with it - although I'm pretty sure Outlook files still live in the normal place on C. Itunes sync acts as if it's working, but nothing changes on my phone.  Any ideas?  Thanks!!

    Replace the memory in the DIMM 3 slot.
    If you are running Mac OS X 10.5 you can use this program to test your G5's memory:

    It will subject your RAM to a more thorough test than Apple Hardware Test.

  • I have two hard drives on my mac 10.5.8 power pc and hear the clickking sounds of the first hard drive and think that it may be dying, can I install everything on the other hard drive also and wait for the first drvie to die before i use the other drives

    I have two hard drives on my mac 10.5.8 power pc and hear the clickking sounds of the first hard drive and think that it may be dying, can I install everything on the other hard drive also and wait for the first drive to die before i use the other drives? Or, what is the best way to handle this?

    I do not know what you are waiting for.
    I'd make a backup of your important stuff before cloning the entire disk.
    Carbon Copy Cloner will copy your startup drive to an external  firewire drive.  You can boot from the external drive to verify that you have a good clone. When you upgrade your existing startup drive, you can at any time boot from your external drive and go back to your existing system.

    SuperDuper is the wildly acclaimed program that makes recovery painless, because it makes creating a fully bootable backup painless. Its incredibly clear, friendly interface is understandable, easy to use, and SuperDuper's built-in scheduler makes it trivial to back up automatically. And it runs beautifully on both Intel and Power PC Macs!

  • Two hard drives

    I have two hard drives. One is meant to be a backup drive. The problem is that my catalogue is getting half the pictures from one drive and half from the other. How can I make it get all files from one drive? I am using LR4.

    Move the files from the backup disk to the main disk. I recommend doing this using the OS Move command or dragging and ropping rather than Lr as it has a habit of loosing the files if the application happens to crash during the move. Also, the OS will leave a copy of the original on the backup until you manually delete it. After moving the files (really a copy) you can use the method described in following tutorial to relink to them in Lightroom http://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm (see section titled 'Updating Folder Location'.

  • Two hard drives connected to Airport Extreme. How to include one of them in TimeMachine Backup and use other disc as Time Machine backup disc?

    Hi,
    the title says it all. I've got an airport extreme and two hard drives connected to it. My idea was to use one as my additional storage (say DISC STORAGE) and the other one as my backup drive (say DISC BACKUP). I would like to backup my mac AND DISC STORAGE together to DISC BACKUP using time machine. My mac has 256 GB HDD, DISC STORAGE is 1 TB big, DISC BACKUP 2 TB. So there are no space issues.
    Problem: DISC STORAGE is not included in Time Machine's backup to DISC BACKUP. At the moment, only the mac is backed up to DISC BACKUP.
    Does anybody know if and how I can include DISC STORAGE in the backup process?
    By the way, DISC STORAGE is not listed in the "exclude from backup" list in Time Machine.
    Thanks!
    Arne

    Unforrtunately, Time Machine cannot backup from a network drive to another drive. Time Machine will only backup a Mac and a drive that is directly attached to the Mac, via USB or FireWire.
    You will need to use an application like Carbon Copy Cloner or SupoerDuper to be able to backup from DISC BACKUP to DISC STORAGE.

  • Two Hard Drives on my computer - one totally full the other totally empty - how do I manage this - windows 8

    Hi I have two hard drives on my computer running Windows 8. One is called OS (C:) and has 10.2GB free of 186GB, the other is Data (D:) and has 258GB of 258GB free.
    I have just tried to update to Windows 8.1 and have had an error message saying there is not enough space on the OS drive to update as it needs 20GB.
    What do I do about this? how do I get to use the 258GB of free space on the Data drive?
    I'd be grateful for an answer!

    Hi,
    In addition to the above information,
    If your operating system is Windows 2008 and higher(Server) or Windows Vista and higher(Client).
    Then you can use the native tool Disk Management to solve your requirement.
    For opening Disk Management, Right click -> Computer -> Select Manage -> As result Computer Management console opens -> In the left pane under storage select Disk Management.
    In the Disk Management, for extending your C: drive, 
    - Since your partition layout as,  C: drive | D: drive.
    - After shrinking D: drive, the layout will be C: drive | D: drive | Unallocated space.
    - Since the unallocated space is not contiguous, when you right-click C: drive the "Extend Volume" option will be greyed out.
    - So to solve your requirement, you have to backup the data on D: drive -> Delete D: drive -> right-click on the c drive and select "Extend Volume" -> enter the size you want to add 
    - Finally you can create a new D: drive from the remaining unallocated space and restore the backup data.
    Checkout the below thread on similar discussion,

    to increase space in c drive

  • Backing up two hard drives

    I was using Time Machine to back up the hard drive on my desk top and to back up an external hard drive that contains all of my video work. I erased the hard drive containing the backups and excluded all other hard drives except for the hard drive on the desk top (Hard Drive A) and the one with my video stuffs (Hard Drive B). Before, A & B would show up on the external containing the backups. But now, it looks like only A is showing up. I did a rough calculation and it looks like the initial backup included both hard drives. Why aren't the two hard drives showing up separately?

    They should, but it depends on how you get into TM and whether you can navigate once you're there.

  • Migration two hard drives

    I tried migrating to my new macbook from a g4 tower with two hard drives. When I hook the fire wire up it only sees the non startup disk and will not see the startup disk on the g4 all my music and photos are on the startup disk which is what I wish to migrate. How do I get the macbook to see the startup disk on the g4?

    That's really not an iTunes question, so this probably isn't the best place to ask.
    Answering quickly, though, Fireware Target Disk Mode only will show the drive that the Master on the ATA bus, regardless of which drive is set as the boot. So if your boot drive is a Slave, it won't show; you'll have to switch the drives around on the ATA bus.
    For further assistance, please take this up in the appropriate PowerMac G4 forum.
    Regards.

  • Consolidating two hard drives without duplicating songs?

    I have two hard drives full of music. Each drive has about 300GB of music each. 90 percent of the music on each drive is the same(copied from one drive to the other over time). However, about 10 percent of the music is different on both drives. If I consolidate the music of both drives is it going to create a 600GB music library or does it recognize similar songs and not copy duplicate songs?
    Thank you for your help

    Open Disk Utility, which is located in Applications/Utilities/ folder.
    Look at the sidebar. You should see the connected storage devices. The devices (or drives) are listed flush against the left edge of the sidebar. Indented to the right, below each device, you should see the volumes on that device. Normally, there should be one volume under a device.
    Describe what you see? Where is the "(2)"? Is it under a device by itself, or is it with another volume under a device.

  • Using two hard drives with Boot Camp?

    Hi,
    I have two hard drives in my mac pro. They both show up on the mac side but when I use windows only the one shows up. Is there a way to have access to the second hard drive using windows?

    You need to install a product like MacDrive. This will enable Mac OS Extended format support for Windows. Be aware that if you do something like this all of your Mac files and OS will be vulnerable to Windows "issues" such as viruses and spyware etc. It is NOT recommended.

  • Operating system not found when deploying to machines with two hard drives using MDT 2013.

    Computers with two hard drives will not boot after the install OS step in the task sequence.  I get the "An operating system wasn't found.  Try removing drives that don't contain an operating system" error.  I am able to get the
    machine to boot by swapping the hard drives' boot order, but the  task sequence won't complete after this.  The deployment works fine on machines with one hard drive, and I'm not getting any errors from the task sequence.  I'm deploying windows7
    enterprise x64 using MDT2013.  This is a new custom image and task sequence generated using MDT2013.  I can't remove the second hard drive because there are scripts that run on the second hard drive during deployment and also because I don't desire
    to remove and re-install 250 hard drives.  I've not experienced this problem with earlier versions of MDT.

    The bdd.log file you sent does not show two internal drives, it shows only one.

  • Two hard drive icons on my desktop, would like to have only one...

    Hello  everyone, I recently got a PowerMac G5 (I think it's a 2.3 GHz). It came with a hard drive inserted 'Untitled', which came from my old 1.6 GHz G5. On the desktop though, I get two hard drive icons, my main start up drive called 'Untitled', and another one called 'Spare'. I was told that my G5 has only one drive inserted 'Untitled', so I'm trying to either get rid of 'Spare', or merge it somehow into 'Untitled'. Under the Volumes folder, I was not really able to get rid of it, is this something to do with Disk Utility?
    BDAqua - under Get Info, when I was on Leopard, I tried changing a User Permissions category called 'Everybody' from Read Only to Read and Write. Upon restart two days later, Leopard would not start up (loads of writing on the screen, with the Mac power button, asking me to restart). To cut a long story, I am now back on Tiger lol (Leopard issues for another discussion lol), so now I dare not play with anything which says Read Only, especially when it's probably not even necessary. I am writing this from the library, so don't know what exactly it says in Get Info - User Permissions for either drive at the moment. If this is relevant, I can have a look later and post back, I'll also verify permissions in Disk Utility for both drives, but I think they are fine. Actually, when I was on Leopard, my 'Untitled' drive took ages to verify permissions, and always loads of writing appeared! Now that I'm on Tiger, the other day when I verified Disk Permissions, it was quick and fine!
    Thank you
    In the screen shots, 'Untitled' is model ST31, 'Spare' is model WDC

    Hi BDAqua, sorry I should have just opened it in the first place! I don't know why that man told me there was only one hard drive inside, perhaps a misunderstanding.
    It seems that there are actually two hard drives inside, one in A, and one in B (see photo)! So, if this is the case, I don't have a problem with the two hard drive icons.
    I guess if a G5 shows two hard drives on the desktop, then there's two hard drives in the machine!
    Thanks for helping anyway.
