Having problems with your IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221 PC Desktop ?

With a IBM 6223 can I mix sata and scsi drives in the same machine?


Answers :

Yes. you can use any mixture of different interfaces a PC. As long as you have the appropriate controller interface to plug the drive into, and your power supply is big enough to support the drive(s) you're using, there should not be a problem.

The only caveat is that if you want to boot from a drive type that is not part of the PC bios, this may not work.

Such as if the bios is so old that it only has IDE and you plug in a SATA or SCSI adapter, it may take some fiddling to make it boot properly. Many interface adapters have their own bios, and sometimes things are not as compatible as they should be.
The 6223 ships with both SATA & SCSI support.
\012You can mix and match.
\012SCSI seems to be higher price per GB, and with $100 SATA drives in the 2 TB range you may get better performance with just one type of drive.
