NT 4 SP2 EIDE/SCSI chkdsk probs
Posted on 1997-04-07
I have a very very strange problem...I have 2 EIDE HDs and a SCSI HDD...I have them partitioned strangely, the boot disk is an EIDE with multiple primary partitions, the SCSI is the "d:" drive and the second EIDE is
partitioned into two logical partitions "e" and "f" ...ok so anyways when I boot up NT and run disk administrator it sees d and f on the same chain , or rather as the same HDD partitioned into a primary and a logical!! (the scsi hdd and one of the logical partitions on the EIDE) which is
really bizarre because that's not correct...I changed my MB recently from an old asus to a newer ASUS P55t2p4 ..in any case, I don't mind if it sees it strangely because everything seemed to work..until I told NT to run
a checkdisk on d: ...when I booted up the next time (since it couldn't do it at the same time because it uses files from d:) it said that D: is probably a "non windows NT disk" and that it can't perform the checkdisk on it...so fine, this sorta makes sense considering how it's viewing them incorrectly...but now NT is stuck running checkdisk on d: every time it boots up..so how do I fix this problem ??? and how do I stop it from running chkdsk everytime it boots up?
also I'm using the asus NCR PCI scsi-2 controller and using native NT drivers...everything else seems to work
fine..Please email me your reply
