Hello community,

 

I have a xserve late 2006 with 2x2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon, running under OSX 10.6.8 with two internal drives Seagate Barrcuda 80 GB in a RAID 1 array very well. Now I need to get larger drives with 2 TB. So I've got two drives Seagate Constellation ES (ST2000NM0011). Unfortunally they are not detected by the system. I also tried to slow down the drives with jumper without any success. Probably the action failed because the SATA 3 drives are not supported by the controller.

 

Now I would like to try other disks with SATA 2, i.e. Seagate Constellation ES 2TB (ST32000644NS). But if I order some more drives, I can not return them to my dealer if they are also not detected by the system.

 

So my question is: Is there anybody who knows, or got own experiences, with any 2TB drives in an Intel based xserve late 2006?

 

Thank you for reading.


Xserve, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 2x2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon
