Guidelines for RIMM Installation
When installing RIMMs, you must follow these guidelines:
■
RIMMs must be installed correctly. Be sure to match the two key
slots on the RIMM with the tabs on the RIMM socket. Push the
RIMM down into the RIMM socket, ensuring that it is fully
inserted and properly seated, and that the retaining arms are locked
in place.
■
CRIMMs must be installed in all empty RIMM sockets. The
CRIMMs are removed when you populate the sockets with
RIMMs. For examples of the correct configuration sequence, refer
to the section, “ Installing RIMMs.”
■
Install RIMMs in pairs across both memory channels. Each RIMM
socket populated with a RIMM or CRIMM on channel A must be
populated with an identical RIMM or CRIMM on Channel B. For
examples of the correct configuration sequence, refer to the
section, "Installing RIMMs.”
■
Do not exceed 32-count Direct RDRAM devices on each Direct
Rambus memory channel. A label on the RIMM will indicate the
number of Direct RDRAM devices on the RIMM and their speed.
✎
■
You cannot remove or add Direct RDRAMS to a RIMM
because the Direct RDRAMS are soldered on and encased by
another material.
Do not mix RIMMs with different memory speeds. Performance
will reflect the lowest speed RIMMs.
CAUTION: Static electricity can damage the electronic components
of the workstation or option boards. Before beginning these
procedures, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity by
briefly touching a grounded metal object.
CAUTION: The above guidelines must be followed when installing
RIMMs or your workstation will not function.
CAUTION: When handling a memory module, do not touch any of the
contacts. Doing so can damage the module.

Master Boot Record
Security
Allows you to enable or disable Master Boot Record
(MBR) Security.
When enabled, the BIOS rejects all requests to write
to the MBR on the current bootable disk. Each time
the computer is powered on or rebooted, the BIOS
compares the MBR of the current bootable disk to the
previously-saved MBR. If changes are detected, you
are given the option of saving the MBR on the current
bootable disk, restoring the previously-saved MBR,
or disabling MBR Security. You must know the setup
password, if one is set.
Note: Disable MBR Security before intentionally
changing the formatting or partitioning of the current
bootable disk. Several disk utilities (such as FDISK
and FORMAT) attempt to update the MBR. If MBR
Security is enabled and disk accesses are being
serviced by the BIOS, write requests to the MBR are
rejected, causing the utilities to report errors. If MBR
Security is enabled and disk accesses are being
serviced by the operating system, any MBR change
will be detected by the BIOS during the next reboot,
and an MBR Security warning message will be
displayed.
Feature supported on select models only.
Save Master Boot Record
Saves a backup copy of the Master Boot Record of
the current bootable disk.
Note: Only appears if MBR Security is enabled.
Restore Master Boot
Record
Restores the backup Master Boot Record to the

Note: Only appears if all of the following conditions
are true:
•
MBR Security is enabled

saved
•
The current bootable disk is the same disk from
which the backup copy of the MBR was saved

H ARD D RIVE I NSTALLATION
G UIDELINES
Using the Cable-Select Feature with Ultra ATA Devices
Select models of the Compaq Deskpro Workstation AP250 have an
internal IDE Ultra ATA hard drive preinstalled. The configuration of
the drives employs a cable-select feature that identifies the drives as
device 0 (primary drive) or device 1 (secondary drive).
The system board determines which drive is device 0 or device 1,
based on the way the drives are connected to the special drive cable.
The device 0 drive is the drive connected to the short segment of the
drive cable (or the connector closest to the system board); the device 1
drive is the drive connected to the long segment of the drive cable.
Compaq 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 Ultra ATA cable for optimal
performance. This cable is standard on select models.
Guidelines for Installing Ultra ATA (IDE) Devices
When installing additional IDE drives, follow these guidelines:
■
For optimal performance, connect hard drives to the primary
controller. Connect expansion devices, such as IDE CD-ROM
drives, tape drives, and diskette drives, to the secondary controller.
■
Install either a third-height or a half-height drive into a half-height
bay.
■
Install guide screws to ensure that the drive lines up correctly in
the drive cage. Compaq has provided extra guide screws, which
are installed in the front of the workstation chassis behind the front
bezel. Some options use M3 metric hardware. Compaq-supplied
metric screws are black.

SCSI Devices and Guidelines
Guidelines for SCSI Devices
When installing and operating SCSI devices, you must follow these
guidelines:
■
A single Ultra SCSI, Ultra-Wide SCSI, Wide-Ultra SCSI, Wide
Ultra2 SCSI or Ultra3 SCSI, controller allows you to daisy-chain
up to 15 additional SCSI devices. Counting the controller, that
amounts to 16 total SCSI devices.
■
If two SCSI controllers are each connected to separate system
board SCSI connectors, each controller may have seven SCSI
devices attached. This will give a total of 16 SCSI devices on the
system.
■
The SCSI controller requires a unique SCSI ID (0-7 or 8-15) for
each SCSI device installed. The controller identifies a SCSI device
by its SCSI ID number rather than its location. Moving a SCSI
device from one position to another on the SCSI chain does not
affect communication between the controller and the device. The
reserved and availagle SCSI ID numbers for SCSI devices are:
❏
0 is reserved for the primary hard drive.
❏
7 is reserved for the controller.
❏
1 through 6 and 8 through 15 are available for all other SCSI
devices.
■
If only one SCSI hard drive is used, it should be installed in the
lowest numbered bay (bay 1).
■
On a Compaq Professional Workstation SP750, Bay 4 is reserved
for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Do not install a SCSI
device in this bay.
■
Every SCSI chain or circuit must be terminated (closed) at both
ends. Some system boards have both ends of the SCSI cable
connected to, and terminated by, the system board. Termination
can be accomplished in one of several ways:
❏
Use a cable with a built-in terminator.
❏
Use a cable with a terminating resistor plug in the last
connector.
❏
Connect a SCSI device with its termination enabled into the
last connector.
C-2 Hard Drive Installation Guidelines
Compaq Confidential - Need to Know Required
Writer: Lydia Sanchez Part Number: 123456-001 File Name: appc.doc
Last Saved On: 04/11/00 5:36 PM Last Saved By: Lydia Sanchez
❏
Connect an external SCSI device with its termination enabled
to the external SCSI connector on the rear panel of the
computer.
■
Turn on all external SCSI devices before turning on the power to
the computer. This enables the SCSI controller to recognize the
external devices.
■
All SCSI hard drives must be either internal or external, but never
both. The system accommodates a combination of other internal
and external SCSI devices, such as tape and CD-ROM drives.
■
Compaq does not recommend mixing different width SCSI devices
on the same SCSI chain or on the same SCSI controller. Mixing
devices of different widths on the same chain or controller will
always result in a data transfer rate of the slowest machine in that
chain. It is acceptable to mix Wide-Ultra2 and Ultra3 SCSI
devices, but do not mix Narrow devices with any devices other
than Narrow devices.
For additional information about optional SCSI devices, refer to the
documentation included with the device or contact your Compaq
authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider.
CAUTION: Do not route cables near the air intake to the power
supply. Cables routed in this manner can block airflow to the power
supply, causing it to overheat.
Guidelines for Installing a SCSI Device
Compaq does not support mixing Ultra ATA and SCSI hard drives in
the same system.
On a Compaq Deskpro Workstation AP250, if you are replacing a hard
drive in bays 4 or 5, the replacement drive should be of the same type
as the drive being removed. If you are replacing the Ultra ATA hard
drive with a SCSI hard drive, you will need a SCSI device option kit
and the SCSI controller option kit. The controller option kit contains
the SCSI controller and a cable that supports multiple SCSI devices.
Before installing a SCSI device on any workstation:
■
Verify the SCSI ID of the drive and, if necessary, set the SCSI ID
to a unique number. See “ Guidelines for SCSI Devices” in this
appendix or refer to the documentation included with the device.
■
Determine if the device requires termination to be enabled or
disabled. Set the termination if necessary. See the section “ Using a
SCSI Cable” or refer to the documentation included with the
device.

SCSI connector on the system board. Channel 2 has two
connectors, one internal SCSI connector on the system board and
one external SCSI connector on the rear panel of the workstation.
(Compaq Professional Workstation SP750)
SCSI Cables
Depending on your workstation model, the following three areas are
available for installing or connecting mass storage SCSI devices:
■
Removable hard drive cage (Compaq Professional Workstation
SP750 only)
■
Front drive bays
Using a SCSI Cable
The Compaq Professional Workstation SP750 ships with a Low
Voltage Differential (LVD) SCSI cable that supports up to five SCSI
devices: a maximum of three in the removable hard drive cage and two
in the front drive bay area.
The Compaq Professional Workstation AP550 ships with a multi-mode
SCSI cable that supports LVD or single-ended devices. The cable
accommodates up to three SCSI devices in the front drive bay area.
The Compaq Deskpro Workstation AP250 also ships with a multimode SCSI cable that supports LVD or single-ended devices. The
cable accommodates up to three SCSI devices in the front drive bay
area. Some Compaq Deskpro Workstation AP250 models ship with an
internal SCSI drive preinstalled in the front drive bay area. You can
add additional high-performance SCSI drives using the external SCSI
connnector located on the rear panel of the workstation.
