The original drive is a Seagate ST93015A 30GB ATA-100
My question, will a drive such as THIS ONE which is listed for a "V2100", and Drive Type: Enhanced IDE (ATA-6 or PATA)work?
Or This one which is listed for a "2100" Enhanced IDE (ATA-6) also work?
Thanks for the help!
Oh, I'll also mention, this is a unit which hung during an OS re-install; hence the HD replacement. Thread HERE. This morning, while giving the Compaq a one over, I discovered one of the 2 ram sticks was not seated correctly. Could this have caused the OS load to hang, as opposed to the problem being a bad sector on the Hard Drive?
I did have to simply shut it down during the attempted OS re-install, as I seemed to hang 'forever' - so I'm not sure what I would do with the existing HD from this point.
