Trouble Partitioning/Formatting SCSI HD.
Posted on 1997-07-07
I have an IBM 1 gig internal SCSi drive. I have the jumpers set to IBM's specification for Macintosh computers. I have a Macintosh IIsi running MacOS 7.6.1. I cannot get Apple HD SC Setup version 7.3.x to recognize the drive so that I can partition and format it. Do I need a special utility to format it? Are there any freeware/shareware utilities that I need to use? Apple's SOS line seems to be glitched, I called at 3:00 PM central time, and the robovox said that it was closed, despite that it said it is open until 8:00 PM central. I'm strapped! SCSI probe says it's there, PC Exchange says it's there, although it is italicized. (What's that?) Any help at all would be appreciated.
