Please tell also about the hardware, particular the disks.

Some examples:

A: Hardware is a server like  desktop.
   It has several SATA Controllers on the mainboard.
   Almost each SATA Controller has a disk connected

B: Hardware is a "desktop"
   Amount of onboard disk controller was not enough.
   Extra disk controller card was inserted

C: Hardware is laptop alike
   Beside inside disks
   were extra disks added throught USB connection

D: Another short description

In other words: Do not feel obligated to make a detailed hardware report
