Formatting the Hard Disk Drive (2618)
Formatting the Hard Disk Drive
Hard disk drives normally contain tracks in excess of their
stated capacity to allow for defective tracks. The user is notified by
a diagnostic message when the defect limit has been
reached and service is recommended.
The Advanced Diagnostics Format program is
different from the operating system format
program. Before the customer can transfer information from the
backup diskettes to the hard disk drive,
the hard disk drive must be formatted using the operating system
format program. Have the customer refer to the operating system manual
for a description of the hard disk preparation commands.
All data on the selected hard disk drive will be
destroyed during a format operation or surface analysis.
After formatting the hard disk drive, copy the System files from the
Diagnostics diskette to the hard disk drive.
