I have PowerEdge Server with DELL certified Seagate harddisk.
I bought it from DELL.

The DELL certified Seagate harddisk has lock problem 1/320 probability
every power-on spinup.

But DELL support says,
"Out of Warranty."

What is DELL certified ?
What is DELL warranty ?

I'm sad, but REAL.

I would like to remove the restrictions PERC H700 and H800 cards.
