I have an old functioning Compaq Proliant Server running Win2k Server from a SCSI HDD. I needed more diskspace for data files, so I installed a Maxtor Ultra ATA/100 PCI Adaptor Card (http://www.maxtor.com/en/documentation/installation_guides/ultra_ata_100_installation_guide.pdf
) which allows me to add an IDE HDD (the Maxtor adaptor allows up to 4 IDE HDD's).
I successfully installed the Adaptor Card, the associated driver, and the IDE HDD.
Issue: When I boot the system, it attempts to unsuccessly boot from the new IDE HDD; not from the existing SCSI HDD, which is what I need/want.
I tried several things ... finally the most likely solution appears to edit the existing BOOT.INI file:
==>Before and after the Adaptor Card/IDE installation, the file contains:
rosoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
==> In attempt to fix issue, I edited the file to contain the following - to (try) a force the system to boot from the SCSI HDD:
osoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
==> This is NOT work.
Any idea? I think I may be in the right track, I may have incorrectly setup the "=scsi(w)disk(x)rdisk(y)pa
" phrase (i.e. parameters w,x,y,z).
Sorry for the measily 75pts, but that is all I have (new to this site). Any help is appreciated.
