Want to upgrade to SATA Hardisk instead of IDE in 3000 H series (8789-Q61)

2009-05-03, 4:31 AM
Hello all,

  My PC is Lenovo 3000 H series (8789-Q61) with 512 MB Ram, 80 GB IDE HDD and DVD Writer. I use Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux on my system. I want to upgrade to SATA Hardisk (160 GB) instead of IDE. Does my system support the upgrade? If yes, then what are the settings should I follow?Bye.

Narasmiha,

 

Your system only supports upto 80gb of HDD capacity.It also does not come with support for SATA based hard disks.I could have pointed you to the relavent link but there is no technical information regarding the model right now on lenovo india.(it has been removed)

I opened the cabinet and I could find two SATA connectors. The linux also detected SATA controller while installing it. Moreover I could not find any info on the web regarding this model. If any body have the same model PC (3000H, 8789-Q61), did they upgrade the PC harddisk? If so, what is the harddisk size and whether SATA or IDE?Bye.
