What you need
• Straight-edge and Phillips screwdrivers
• Four 6-32 UNC drive mounting screws
• An ATA host adapter and interface cable (max length: 18
inches) with enough connectors for all your drives
• An unused drive power cable for your new drive
• A bootable DOS system diskette (Seagate recommends using
DOS Version 5.0 or later.)
• If you are mounting this 3.5-inch drive in a 5.25-inch drive bay,
you need a mounting adapter or frame kit. Also, you may need
drive mounting rails if your drive bay is not designed for direct
mounting.
Before you begin
• Make sure your computer is turned off before you open the
case.
• Read the handling precautions following and inspect the drive
to make sure that it is not damaged.
• Save your foam-lined Seagate disc drive box. Seagate has
approved this box for shipping a Seagate disc drive. Using any
other container or packing material voids your drive warranty.

Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
Handling precautions
Disc drives are extremely fragile. Do not drop or jar
your drive.
Keep the drive in its antistatic bag until you are
ready to install it.
Protect your drive from static discharge by making
sure you are well grounded before touching the
drive. We recommend wearing a grounded wrist
strap throughout the installation process. Do not
touch the connectors or any part of the printed circuit board.
Always handle the drive by its edges or frame.
Do not apply pressure or attach labels to the circuit
board or the top of the drive.
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B

Master/slave jumpers
If your new Seagate drive will be the only drive in your computer,
you do not have to change any jumper settings. In this case, skip
ahead to “Attaching Cables and Mounting the Drive,” on page 5.
If you already have one hard drive in your computer and you are
installing a second drive, you must configure one drive as a master and the other as a slave.
To configure the drive as a master or one drive only:
• Place a jumper on pins 5 and 6 (see Figure 1 on page 4).
The master drive usually defaults to being the “boot” drive
(drive C), from which the computer loads system software
when it first starts up.
To configure the drive as a slave:
• Remove all the jumpers.
• If you need to change the jumpers on your existing hard drive,
see the Disk Manager online manual, look on the drive label,
or contact the drive manufacturer.

Attaching cables and mounting the drive
1. If you are attaching a new ATA interface cable to a single
drive, attach one end of the cable to the interface connector
on your host adapter or motherboard. Motherboard connectors can be identified by the IDE or HDD 40-pin connector.
The ATA cable must be no more than 18 inches (457 mm)
long.
2. Thread the interface cable through the drive bay and attach
the connector at the end of the interface cable to your new
drive.
Note. If you have two drives, attach the second drive to the second connector.

Caution. To avoid possible damage to your system,
make sure to align pin 1 on the host adapter or motherboard with pin 1 on your drive or drives. Pin 1 on the
interface cable is usually indicated by a stripe along the
edge of the cable.

3. You can mount the drive in any orientation. Usually it is
mounted with the circuit board down.
4. Slide the drive carefully into the drive bay. Secure the drive
with four 6-32 UNC mounting screws in either the sidemounting holes or the bottom-mounting holes. Insert the
screws no more than 0.22 inch (5.58 mm) into the bottommounting holes and no more than 0.20 inch (5.0 mm) into the
side-mounting holes.
Caution. To avoid possible damage to the drive, do not
overtighten the screws or use metric screws.

Note. If you are mounting the drive in a 5.25-inch drive bay, you
need a mounting adapter or frame kit. Contact your computer dealer. Some computers also require drive mounting rails, which can be obtained from your distributor or
computer manufacturer.
5. Attach a power cable to each drive. If your computer does not
have an unused power connector, you can purchase a Yshaped power cable from your computer dealer.
6. Check all cable connections and then replace your computer
cover. Continue to “Configuring your computer.”

Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
Configuring your computer
Before you format or partition your new drive, you must configure
your computer’s BIOS so that the computer can recognize your
new drive.
1. Turn your computer on. As your computer starts up, watch the
screen for a message that describes how to run the system
setup program (also called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is
usually done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC,
or F1, during startup. See your computer manual for details.
Press the appropriate key to run the System Setup program.
2. Enable LBA mode if it is available. Many BIOS use the logical
block addressing (LBA) mode to access drives with capacities
greater than 528 Mbytes.
3. If your BIOS provides automatic drive detection (an “Auto”
drive type), select this option. This allows your computer to
configure itself automatically for your new drive.
If your BIOS does not provide automatic drive detection,
select “User-defined” drive settings. If your computer supports
LBA addressing, enter the LBA cylinder, head, and sector values for your drive from the table at the top of the next column.
If your computer does not support LBA addressing, enter the
CHS values from the table.
4. Save the settings and exit the System Setup program (your
computer will automatically reboot).

Recommendation
After your configure your computer, we recommend that you use
Disk Manager to partition and format your drive. If your computer
was built before mid-1994, you probably will not be able to
access the full capacity of your new drive unless you use Disk
Manager. See page 13 for information on Installation using Disk
Manager.
If you do not want to use Disk Manager, you can use the standard DOS commands to partition and format your drive, as
described on page 15.
10
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
Addressing drive-capacity limitations
Some DOS-based computers and operating systems are not
designed to accommodate large-capacity hard disc drives. The
three most common system limitations are listed below, along
with suggestions for overcoming these limitations. See your system manual to determine which (if any) of these limitations
applies to your computer.
528-Mbyte limit
The BIOS in some older computers cannot accommodate drives
with capacities greater than 528 Mbytes. Seagate provides free
Disk Manager software with your drive to overcome this limitation. Alternatively, you can purchase a hard drive controller or a
BIOS upgrade that supports drives with capacities greater than
528 Mbytes.
The 32-bit disk access feature in Windows 3.1 does not work
with drives that have capacities greater than 528 Mbytes. If you
want to use 32-bit disk access with Windows 3.1, see the file
SEG32BIT.TXT, located on your Disk Manager diskette, for further information.

Partitioning and formatting your drive
One drive:
For a quick installation, use the Disk Manager software to partition and format your Seagate drive. Disk Manager also ensures
that your computer can access the full capacity of your hard
drive. See “Installation using Disk Manager” on page 13.
You can also use the FDISK.EXE command. See “Standard
DOS installation” on page 15.
To complete installation using Windows 95 or Windows 98:
• Boot your computer from the Windows 95 or Windows 98
startup diskette with the CD-ROM loaded.
• Note the drive letter for your CD-ROM device.
• At the A: prompt, type x:setup, where x is the letter of your
•
CD-ROM drive.
Continue with the Windows setup instructions.
Two drives:
You can use Disk Manager to install an additional drive. See
“Installation using Disk Manager” on page 13.
To add a slave drive without using Disk Manager, use the
FDISK.EXE command. See “Standard DOS installation” on page
15.
To add a slave drive using Windows 95 or Windows 98:
• Click START.
• Choose RUN.
Type FDISK. See “Standard DOS installation.”
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
13
Installation using Disk Manager
1. Boot your computer from your bootable Disk Manager diskette. Booting from a diskette ensures that the Disk Manager
installation does not conflict with any other software. The Disk
Manager software is stored on this diskette and automatically
starts.
Or at the A: prompt, type DM and press
ENTER.
2. Follow the onscreen instructions until you see the Select an
Installation Option menu.
3. Select either (E)asy Disk Installation or (A)dvanced Disk
Installation.
Disk Manager lists all the hard drives that it detects. You
should see your new Seagate drive and your existing hard
drive, if any.
If any hard drive is not recognized, exit Disk Manager and
turn off your computer. Check all cables, jumpers and BIOS
settings. Then start at Step 1 to run Disk Manager again.
4. If Disk Manager recognizes all your drives, select the drive
you want to install and press ENTER. Disk Manager partitions
and formats the drive.
Note. If your computer cannot accommodate hard drives with
capacities greater than 528 Mbytes or 8.4 Gbytes, Disk
Manager installs a Dynamic Drive Overlay (DDO) on your
hard drive. If this driver has been installed, you should
see a blue Disk Manager banner each time you boot your
computer. See the Disk Manager online manual for details.
5. Follow the instructions in the post-installation screens and
continue with your Windows 95 or Windows 98 installation.

Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
Windows 95 or Windows 98 Installation
1. Boot your computer from the Windows 95 or Windows 98
startup diskette with the CD-ROM loaded.
2. Note the drive letter for your CD-ROM device.
3. At the A: prompt, type x:setup, where x is the letter of your
CD-ROM drive.
4. Continue with the Windows setup instructions.
You’re Done!

Standard DOS installation
!
Caution. Partitioning or formatting a drive erases all
data on it. Seagate assumes no liability if you erase
your data.
Drive partitioning
Partitioning a hard drive divides it into sections (partitions) that
behave as separate logical drives (labeled C,D,E, etc.). In creating partitions, keep in mind that the larger the partition, the more
drive space is taken up in unused clusters. For this reason, if
most of your files are smaller than 50 Kbytes, you should use
partitions of 1 Gbyte or less. To partition your new drive:
1. Insert a bootable DOS diskette into your diskette drive and
restart your computer. (Seagate recommends using DOS Version 5.0 or greater.)
2. Insert a DOS program diskette that has the FDISK.EXE and
FORMAT.COM programs into your diskette drive. At the A:
prompt, type FDISK and press ENTER.
3. If you have two hard drives installed, the FDISK menu displays five options. Option five allows you to select the drive
you want to partition. Make sure that your new drive is
selected.
4. Select “Create DOS partition or logical DOS drive” by pressing 1. Then press ENTER.
5. Select “Create primary DOS partition” by pressing 1 again.
Then press ENTER. Create your first drive partition. If you are
creating a partition that will be used to boot your computer
(drive C), make sure the partition is marked active.
16
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
6. Create an extended partition and additional logical drives, as
necessary, until all the space on your new hard drive has
been partitioned.
7. When partitioning is complete, FDISK reboots your computer.
Drive formatting
!
Caution. Make sure to use the correct drive letters so
that you do not format a drive that already contains
data.
At the A: prompt, type format x: /s, where x is the letter of your
first new partition. Repeat the format process for all the new partitions you have created.
Note. From FDISK in Windows 95 or Windows 98, it is not necessary to add the /s to the format command because
these system files are automatically added.
After you format your drive, it is ready to use.
You’re Done!

Figure 5. Non-ATA compatible and cable select jumpers
Non-ATA compatible slave jumper
If your computer does not recognize your new drive as a master
in a two-drive system, the slave drive may not be ATA-compatible. You may be able to solve this problem by installing jumpers
on pins 3 and 4 and on pins 5 and 6, as shown in Figure 5.
18
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
Cable select jumper
Some computers differentiate between master and slave drives
using specially designed interface cables that have the line to pin
28 (the Cable Select pin) removed or cut at one connector. The
connector that has pin 28 disabled is used for the slave drive.
See your computer manual to determine whether your computer
supports this feature. To configure your Seagate drive for cable
select, place a jumper on pins 3 and 4 as shown in Figure 5.

Advanced Disk Manager options
The Disk Manger online manual
Disk Manager contains an extensive online manual. This manual
includes detailed installation instructions, troubleshooting and a
list of master/slave jumper settings for many popular hard drives.
To view the Disk Manager online manual, insert the Disk Manager diskette into drive A and type A:\DM /H. Then press ENTER.
You can also view the online manual from within Disk Manager
by selecting (V)iew/Print Online Manual in the main menu.
Booting from a diskette
If Disk Manager installs the dynamic drive overlay (DDO) to
access the full capacity of your drive, the DDO must load into
memory before the operating system loads. This occurs automatically when you boot from your hard drive (drive C). However,
if you boot from a diskette, the DDO will not be loaded and you
will not be able to access your hard drive. The following procedure allows you to boot from a diskette and still access your hard
drive.
1. Boot the computer from the hard disc (with no diskette in the
diskette drive).
2. When the Disk Manager banner appears on the screen,
immediately press the SPACEBAR (you have about 2 seconds).
3. Insert your boot diskette and press the SPACEBAR again.
If you boot from a diskette regularly, you can create a Dynamic
Drive Overlay boot diskette. It loads DDO into memory and then
loads the operating system. See the Disk Manager online manual for more information about creating a dynamic drive overlay
boot diskette.
20
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
Supported operating systems
The Disk Manager dynamic drive overlay provides support for
drives with capacities greater than 528 Mbytes under MS-DOS,
Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows NT 3.51, Windows NT 3.50
(requires DM upgrade drivers), OS/2 V3.0 (Warp full pack), and
OS/2 V2.0–3.0 (requires DM upgrade drivers).
Before you install a non-DOS operating system on the drive,
install DOS and Disk Manager and make sure that the drive is
bootable. Instructions for running the dynamic drive overlay with
other operating systems are available in the Disk Manager online
manual.
Removing the dynamic drive overlay
If Disk Manager installs a dynamic drive overlay (DDO) and you
do not need this software to access the full capacity of your
drive, you can remove the dynamic drive overlay without losing
your data. However, you will lose access to the full capacity of
your drive unless you have another method for accessing highcapacity drives (see Addressing drive-capacity limitations on
page 10).
!
Caution. Before you attempt to remove a DDO, make
a backup copy of all the data on your hard drive. Also,
run CHKDSK, SCANDISK or a third-party equivalent to
detect and repair any damaged files before you follow
the procedure below. If the DDO migration program
encounters a serious file problem or is interrupted by a
power loss or hardware failure, the migration will fail
and your data will be lost.

Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
Troubleshooting
If you have installed your drive and it does not function properly,
perform the following basic checks:
Warning. Always turn off the computer before changing
jumpers or unplugging cables and cards. Wear a
ground strap or use other antistatic precautions while
working on your computer or handling your drive.
• Verify compatibility. Verify that the host adapter and drive are
•
•
•
•
appropriately matched to each other and to your computer.
Refer to the relevant documentation for details.
Check all cards. Verify that all cards are seated in their slots
on the motherboard and secured with mounting screws.
Check all connectors and cables. Make sure all ribbon and
power cables are securely connected. Ribbon cables are easily damaged, especially at the connector. Try a new cable that
you know is good. Make sure no connector pins are bent. Verify that pin 1 on the interface cable is aligned with pin 1 on the
drive and host adapter (see Figure 2 on page 5).
Verify jumper settings. Review the instructions in this guide
and in your host adapter installation guide. Make sure all
appropriate jumpers are installed or removed as necessary.
Check your power-supply specifications. Each time you
add a new device to your computer, make sure your computer’s internal power supply can support the total power
demand. If necessary, consult your dealer for a new power
supply.
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
23
• Verify the drive-type settings in the system setup pro-
•
gram. The drive-type settings in the system BIOS must not
exceed the physical specifications of your drive. Also, the settings must not exceed the limitations set by the operating system and BIOS.
Check for viruses. Before you use someone else’s diskette in
your system for the first time, scan the diskette for viruses.
Advanced troubleshooting
If you have performed the preceding basic checks but the problem persists, follow these guidelines for troubleshooting specific
cases:
!
Caution. To avoid electrostatic discharge damage to
your computer or hard drive, make sure you are wellgrounded before touching the drive, cable, connector
or jumpers.
The screen remains blank when you power up the system.
If the steps listed above do not remedy this problem, try the following:
• Make sure the monitor is plugged in and turned on.
• Check all cards.
• Make sure the video card is seated in its slot and is secured
with mounting screws.
• Turn off the computer and remove the drive host adapter. If the
screen turns on after you reboot, the host adapter may be
incompatible or defective. If so, see your dealer.
24
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
The system does not recognize the drive.
• Check all cables.
• Make sure the power supply is adequate for system needs.
• Reboot the computer and listen to make sure the drive motor
starts up. If the drive is very quiet, it may be difficult to hear its
discs reach operating speed. If the drive motor does not start
up, recheck all drive cables.
• Verify that for each drive, a drive-type is listed in the system
setup program.
• If the drive is to be the master drive with a non-ATA-compatible
slave, set the jumpers on the drive as shown in Figure 5 on
page 17.
• Try rebooting your computer by pressing the CTRL, ALT and
DELETE keys simultaneously. If the drive is recognized after you
reboot the system, the computer BIOS test may be completing
before the drive is ready.
One solution is to slow the processor speed during startup. If
your computer has a turbo switch, set it to slow speed before
turning the computer on. If there is no turbo switch, you may
be able to use keyboard commands; see your computer manual for details. After the computer is up and running, return the
processor to the fast speed.
Another solution is to warm-boot your computer after every
power-on.
• Check for I/O address conflicts. To isolate the conflict, verify
that the drive and host adapter are compatible with your computer. Turn off the computer and remove all the peripheral
adapter cards except for the video card and host adapter. If
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
•
25
the computer recognizes the drive when you reboot, turn off
the computer. Reinstall the other peripheral cards, one at a
time, until the conflict reoccurs. After you have isolated the
source of the address conflict, you can resolve the conflict by
changing the I/O address of the peripheral that appears to
cause the conflict.
If Disk Manager has installed the DDO on your hard drive and
you have booted directly from a diskette, the information in the
boot record for the drive may not have been loaded. Make sure
there is no diskette in drive A and reboot. If you want to boot
from the diskette, follow the “Booting with a Diskette” instructions under “Advanced Disk Manager Options” on page 19.
The dealer partitioned and formatted the drive for you in the
store, but the drive does not respond when you install it.
• Reboot the computer and make sure the drive spins up. Check
all cables.
• Make sure the power supply is adequate for system needs.
• Make sure the DOS or Windows version the dealer used to
partition and format the drive is the same version you have
installed in your computer. If it isn’t, see your dealer.
• Verify the drive-type values in the system setup program. You
must install the drive using the same drive-type values your
dealer used to partition the drive.
• Check for I/O address conflicts between peripheral cards.
• Check for viruses.
The system hangs in FDISK or fails to create or save the
partition record.
• Check all cables.
26
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
• Your setup system diskette may be corrupted. Try using a
backup diskette.
• Make the partitions smaller.
• Change the interrupt jumper setting on the host adapter.
• Some BIOS have a Track 0 protection feature that protects
Track 0 from viruses. This may cause FDISK to hang the system. You must disable this feature in the system setup program before you can use FDISK. See your computer reference
guide for assistance. Be sure to re-enable this important feature when FDISK is done.
The system error message, “Drive not Ready,” appears.
• Check all cable connections. Make sure pin 1 of the drive is
connected to pin 1 of the hard-disc controller or host adapter.
• Make sure the power supply is adequate for system needs.
• Reboot the computer and make sure the drive spins up.
The FDISK error message, “No Fixed Disk Present,”
appears.
• Make sure the power supply is adequate for system needs.
• Verify the drive-type values in the system setup program.
• Check for I/O address conflicts.
The drive does not format to full capacity.
• Verify the drive-type values in the system setup program. One
of the following problems may have occurred:
– The values may be set with an incorrect translation characteristic.
Medalist 1721, 1010, Rev. B
27
– You may have entered a parameter value that exceeds the
physical capacity of the drive.
– You entered a translation characteristic that does not take full
advantage of the drive’s capacity.
– The drive’s physical specifications exceed the translation
limits imposed by the BIOS.
!
Caution. If you change the drive-type values in the
system setup program, you must partition and format
the drive again. This erases data on the drive.
• If you have partitioned the drive into individual logical drives,
•
you may need to make the partitions smaller to access the full
drive capacity.
If your computer supports LBA mode, you may need to enable
LBA mode in the system setup program to access the full
capacity of the drive. Refer to your computer’s reference guide
to find out how to enable LBA.
The DOS message “Disk Boot Failure,” “Non-System Disk”
or “No ROM Basic – SYSTEM HALTED” appears.
• Reinstall the DOS system files using the DOS SYS utility.
• Check all cables.
• Use FDISK to verify that the primary partition is active.
• Check for viruses.
The system error message, “HDD controller failure”
appears.
• Confirm the jumper settings on the drive.
• Verify the drive-type settings in the system setup program.

Shipping a drive in an unapproved container voids the warranty.
Call your authorized Seagate distributor for information on packing materials. Figure 6 shows how a drive fits in an approved single-pack box, including the packing materials.
Note. Back up the data on your drive before shipping the drive.
Seagate assumes no responsibility for data lost during
shipping or drive repair.

Warranty
See your authorized Seagate distributor or dealer. Preinstalled
or bundled software is provided “as is.” There are no warranties
of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. All such
warranties are expressly and specifically disclaimed.
Maintenance and repair
Seagate drives do not require maintenance. The head/disc
assembly is sealed; a broken seal voids the warranty. Seagate
customer-service centers are the only facilities authorized to
repair Seagate drives.

the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 89/336/EEC of 03
May 1989 as amended by Directive 92/31/EEC of 28 April 1992
and Directive 93/68/EEC of 22 July 1993.
Compliance of this drive, as a system component, was confirmed with a test system. We cannot guarantee that your system
will comply. The drive is not meant for external use (without properly designed enclosure, shielded I/O cable, etc.).
