I had Windos nt 4.0 server running. It boot up on a simple 500mb HD. Now I've installed/added win2000 advanced server on a SCSI HD of 4GB on the same system.
The only problem is I want to get rid of the 500mb HD!!

There is no problem with the SCSI part.
SCSI BIOS is working fine and if I switch it on it will attempt to bootup from the scsi disk, except there are no system files, so he hangs

In short:
I need the replacing NT command of the DOS command "sys".

This should be so simple, but I just don't know how.

It's not so easy... remove the 500 MB disk first.
You can try to do this.
Restart the setup from the CD. Choose Repair and choose repair the Windows NT boot sector

You'll also need to modify the boot.ini file to correctly point to the SCSI disk in the new configuration. (Especially if you change SCSI IDs)

You can use the boot.ini that you have now and modify it...if you need help place the boot.Ini here..
