Handling precautions
Address jumper and drive option blocks
Do not open the electrostatic discharge (ESD) bag
containing the drive until required.
Do not apply pressure on the drive during handling
or installation.
To prevent damage from impact or vibration
always set the drive down gently.
Handle the drive carefully by the edges. Do not
touch the exposed printed circuit board or any
electronic components.
Do not cover the breather hole! Covering the
breather hole may result in loss of data.
Save the packaging materials including the ESD
bag in the event that the drive must be returned.
Installing the drive
1. Backup all data.
2. Record the serial number and part number of your
hard drive for future reference.
3. Turn off the computer and remove the computer
system cover.
4. Before handling the hard disk drive, discharge any
static electricity from yourself and your clothing.
With one hand touch an unpainted metal surface
on the computer chassis, then touch the ESD bag
with the other hand for a minimum of two seconds.
5. Remove the hard drive from the ESD bag.
6. Unplug the computer.
7. Assign a SCSI address (0 through 15) to the drive
by installing a jumper on the appropriate ID bits
(pin pairs D, E, F, and G) on jumper block J4 as
shown on the shaded area in the illustration below.
Address 6 is the shipping default for 68-pin models
Address 7 is normally reserved for the host adapter
8. Select the desired options by placing a jumper on
the pin pair for that option. The options are listed
below cross-referenced by a letter to the two
jumper blocks in the above illustration. Refer to
the Ultrastar 73LZX product summary for a
description of the options.
Pin pair for LED connection
Termination Power (68-pin model only)
Force Single-ended Mode
Enable Auto Spin (68-pin model)
Disable Auto Spin (80-pin model
Auto Start Delay
Delay Start 6/12
Disable Parity
Target Initiated Sync Negotiation
Disable Unit Attention

Partitioning and formatting (using DOS 5.0 or later)
For this drive to operate in LVD mode all SCSI devices including the SCSI bus host adapter must be
LVD devices.
The drive is designed to detect if the SCSI bus is
LVD or SE. The drive will function based upon the
mode that it detects. If for some reason the drive
cannot detect an SE mode bus, place a jumper on
pins 5 & 6 of jumper block J-4 to force SE mode.
CAUTION: Partitioning and formatting will destroy any
previous data. When partitioning and formatting a drive
in a system with more than one drive be sure that you
select the correct hard drive.
1. With the OS setup diskette inserted in the floppy
drive, turn on the computer.
2. At the DOS prompt type FDISK, press ENTER,
and follow the instructions on the screen.
3. To format the primary system drive, type
FORMAT C:/S at the DOS command prompt and
press ENTER. The /S parameter makes C: the
operating system startup drive.
4. To format a second drive (not C:), type
FORMAT X: (where X is the drive letter assigned
by FDISK) at the DOS prompt and press ENTER.
5. Remove the diskette and restart your computer.
The partitioning and formatting is complete.
6. Install the operating system.
On 68 pin drives termination power must be
provided. In most cases it is provided by the host
adapter. If it is not, install a jumper on pins 3 & 4
of jumper block J-4 to enable termination power.
See the illustration above. (The 80-pin drive does
not provide termination power.)
9. For a 68 pin drive attach the power cable and
ensure that one end of the SCSI cable is connected to the host adapter. Attach a terminator to
the end of the SCSI cable furthest from the host
adapter. If the drive is the only device on the SCSI
cable, attach it to the cable connector closest to
the terminator. Additional drives may be attached
to any unused connector. (The 80-pin drive is
plugged into server backplanes and requires no
10. Using the appropriate brackets or rails, mount the
drive with any of its six surfaces facing down.
Retrieve any loose screws or parts from within the
11. Ensure that cables are properly routed.
12. Plug in your computer. Do not turn it on.
13. Insert the operating system (OS) setup diskette
into the floppy drive.
14. Turn on your computer.
If the system boots up, turn off your computer
and replace the cover.
If your system does not boot up, turn off your
computer and check all connections and settings. Turn on and boot the system.
If the system still fails to boot up, turn off your
computer and remove the new drive to return
the system to its original configuration. Contact
