Booting off of a SCSI drive with IDE drive installed
Posted on 1997-08-05
I know a decent amount about computers, but scsi is pretty
new to me. I have an adaptec 2940UW scsi controller and
a Seagate Baracuda 4.3GB drive. The drive is currently
sitting on channel 0 and the card is on 7. First of all
is this a good configuration?
I currently boot off of the Baracuda. I want to add a Seagate Medalist 850MB drive to the system on the primary
ide controller. Should this be set as master or slave? When I boot the system in either configuration the ide drive is the one that is booted, but there is nothing bootable about it. How do I get the system to boot off of the scsi drive? Is there a bios setting that I need to check or is it a jumper or setting on the scsi controller?
If it helps any I have a Gateway Pentium II 266 with 64MB or ram. Thanks for your time in answering.
