I have a PPro (Dell Optiplex) with a Adaptec UW controller. The controller is using the 50 PIN connecter to interface with the drives (Seagate Barracuda, SCSI CD Rom). I am trying to add a Ultra Wide drive to the scsi bus via a 68->50 pin adapter plugged into an available spot on the ribbon cable.
Here's the problem: the scsi adapter will see all the drives fine. FDisk however will not see the ultrawide drive on the bus (even though the scsi BIOS sees it). I'd like to have the UW drive be the boot drive (ID0) and the older barracuda the D drive. This situation happens even with just the UW drive on the BUS w/o other drives.
