Unable to install window NT boot loader

I brought a new machine with scsi hard-drive on it(no IDE
hard drive).  When I install the NT4.0, it retuns the
following message:
setup unable to install window nt boot loader.
ensure that your c: drive is formatted and that the drive
is not damage.  setup cannot continue. Press enter to exit.

I'm sure the scsi drive is fine.  Does anyone know to
to install nt with scsi hard-drive only?
I run "winnt /b" on i386 directory, but it doesn't work.
Thanks.

It normally works fine when you use winnt /x /b if the SCSI drive can be seen in the DOS mode. If this will not work try it by booting from the winnt diskettes. If you do not have any you can produce them with "winnt /ox"
