Hard Drive for HP ultra slim 7800

CD7800 USDT
Microsoft Windows Vista

I wondered if anybody knows what brand of hard drive fits the little ultra slim CD7800 HP desktop PC?

Any idea exact spefication on brand that fits.  I am talking about after you install, the operation system (to be a Windows) recognizes the hard drive.

Thanks

Hi:

 

According to the quickspecs at the link below (page 13), your PC uses a 2.5" notebook hard drive.

I highly recommend you get a SATA II hard drive and not a SATA III one because your PC may have drive controller issues if you install a SATA III hard drive as referenced in this document below.

I have the dc7800 CMT and when I replaced the SATA II hard drive with a SATA III one, my PC had the 1st 2 symptoms listed in the support document.

Thanks for your response. I could not return your email   since I had ordered a new hard drive and was waitng for receiving it. I installed a new one and it worked  fine. Your guidance was helpful. Jim
