SCSI bios does not detect drive
Posted on 2002-06-17
I don't know is this belongs in the MS-Dos or General Hardware section but here goes:
I have an adaptec 19160 scsi card connected to a Fujitsu 36.4 g HD. The connector is the 68 pin from the card to a SCA-2 (via an adapter) on the HD. The card is installed in PCI slot 3 of an FIC 503+ MB.
I am currently booting from a 2 g IDE HD with windoze 98. I want to make the scsi drive my boot drive but I can't seem to make get bios to detect it. Strangely enough once windoze loads the scsi drive is accessible and usable via windoze.
When I boot up the card is detected and scsi bios loads, but scsi bios does not detect the drive. I used EZ SCSI Drive Preparer (an older version) to partition the scsi drive into 2 ~18g drives and made one of them bootable. They show up as my d: and e: drives in windoze explorer.
What am I missing?
