Yes! Bios is the latest, and HDD is configured ok. If course I also tried to make it work alone. But NO difference... So I don't think it's a problem regarding the two channels working together...
I think the trouble must be in some kind of configuration that doesn't work in the LVD connector, instead of the old 2940u2w fast-ultra 68pin connector... besides I know it's a strange thind as the Atlas hdd is an LVD disk, so I had to experiment troubles on the 2940U2W instead!
I thought you said earlier you could get into the 29160's BIOS??? It generally scans all the devices before you enter the SCSI BIOS. If you cant get into the SCSI BIOS, try removing all of the devices from the SCSI bus and then accessing the SCSI BIOS. Then you can check the setup.
I just noticed from your first post, is your HDD LVD or SE?
Are you using one cable for the HDD, and a different cable for the CD-ROMs?

Hi, if you press CTRL+A you can access the BIOS BEFORE it scans the devices... then you can try to check all the setup, but when you reboot (or if you try to scan the bus from the bios itself, it hangs (a timeout error after one minute or two appears)
Yes, the HDD is LVD, but you can force SE mode if you like (of course I tried this option...)
