    the SCSI that wouldn't behave

    Welcome, SCSI professionals. Kinda like the sign outside Fry's, "Welcome, high-tech professionals"...

    Finally got a SCSI card that'd work with my 1GB IBM 0664 N1H HDD. Then the cable. Finally bought the terminator. The Adapted utility sees the HDD, but W2K doesn't.

    Pls tell me it's something do-able. The SCSI BIOS is enabled. Have an AMI Megathon (Athlon) with AMI BIOS.

    If you're familiar with AMI BIOS and, say, know where I need to disable the SCSI BIOS (assuming that's it), that'd be helpful to know also.

    Thx

    Hope this doesn't seem to obvious but did you try a low-level format? That is if you don't need the data on the drive.

    It is like the edge of a sword

    I don't know if this will help but is your drive terminated? There should be a jumper on the drive unless it's factory terminated already. This is if the drive is by itself or it's the last device on the cable. Or is the end of cable terminated?

    Hi, phenix and modran.

    W2K setup detected the SCSI drive and even formatted it for me.

    There's a trick to doing it. I had to trick Setup into thinking the SCSI was going to contain the boot partition (system files).

    This trick also worked with a couple of 20.94GB partitions that W95C refused to format (a teeny bit too large for FAT32).

    Thx
