Subject: PE1900 and 8 hard drives


I previously used PowerEdge 1800 with 8 SATA hard drives - placing 6 on 
the RAID and 2 more on build in SATA controller.    Some had to take non

hot swap locations but it is find for this project.

Now I can't get PE1800 any more but can get 1900 instead.

My question is if I can still fit 8 hard drives in it or something
changed making this impossible ?
