    Re: Failed SATA Hard Drive in MS750

    [QUOTE=Elberoth;263301]Indeed, this looks like an old IDE drive:



    SATA is the current standard.

    Here you can get a brand new one:



    Thank You - as soon as the unit is back in my possession I am going to take a look !

    Hi Dan - Thanks kindly for the information and your own experience.

    The unit is in transit back to me from the Service Department of the dealer where I had purchased it. They had advised that they could not repair because of the SATA hard drive. As soon as it's back I will open the cover to see what hard drive is in my MS750?

    Did you replace your hard drive yourself or have it serviced? Can you share more details about the replacement process?

    Thanks kindly, Michael

    Michael.......The ribbon cable is a dead give-away the hard drive is IDE, not SATA.





    Yes, I replaced the hard drive myself, then reloaded the operating system on the new hard drive, followed with reloading all of my CD's. Replacing the hard drive is straight forward. Unplug the power cable and the ribbon cable, remove a couple of support screws and the hard drive comes right out. Reverse the process when installing the new hard drive.

    Thanks again - I am hopeful when I receive mine back it will also have the IDE Hard Drive.

    I'll stay in touch - I'll also let you know what the Dealer has sent me in terms of software that will need to be reloaded - both to compare what you used versus what I am sent - and your software re installation process.

    Kindly, Michael

    Re: Failed SATA Hard Drive in MS750

    Yup Dan, the ribbon is a dead give away. Does he have to get the OS file from McIntosh, or is it in firmware and will automatically load on the new drive? I assume it is specifically for the machine and not a standard computer OS.

    Randy.......The OS for the MS750 is not firmware based software, it must be loaded onto the hard drive from the MS750's internal transport. There are plenty of "golden discs" out there floating around in member's hands of the McIntosh MS750 proprietary operating system software. Someone should be able to burn a copy for Michael if he needs it.

    Thanks Dan, I hope this helps Michael. I assumed there would have to be some method of loading the operating system on to the MS750 hard drive.

    A lesson learned: if the service depart could not tell you correctly what kind of drive your unit had, you may want to look elsewhere next time.
