Setup was unable to locate a CD-ROM drive
Posted on 1999-01-17
I am trying to install NT4.0 on a new server that is SCSI. I am using an Adaptec AHA-1542CF controller and I have one hard drive and one CD-ROM drive hooked up to the system. I have tried two different SCSI CD-ROM drives, but I get the same problem with both. After Setup does the search for storage devices, it only finds the controller. It then gives the following message - "Setup was unable to locate a CD-ROM." Setup is unable to continue past this point.
I would think that the SCSI driver I need for the CD-ROM would be built into the NT database, since the 1542CF controller was so popular. I can't find the driver I need anywhere!
The two different CD-ROM drives I am trying to use are a Teac CD56S, and a NEC 4x multispin. These should both work with NT shouldn't they?
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
