Just thought I'd admit that I found the problem with my O2 and the HDD.

Harddrive spinup problems in O2

Hi, I've been reading a lot in these forums and am a long time SGI user. Hi :-) To my question. I have an O2 which have worked fine for years. One day I got a bigger disk (36G) and installed IRIX on it, used it for a day or two everything looked fine. Then one day I turned it on and the harddrive su...
