Do I really have a SCSI drive in my system?
Posted on 2003-11-26
I am trying to add a second hard drive to my system (a Seagate ATA drive) but I have the following problem: I recently upgraded the OS from Win98SE to Win2000. The System Hardware Device Manager reports that my hard drive is a SCSI device. I thought the hard drive that came with this computer was an IDE drive (P/N 0971U, IDE Seagate 7200 RPM, 27 GB). But, as I said, Win2000 reports this as a SCSI drive.
The Seagate installation utility tells me that since there is no ATA drive in my system, I need to make the new ATA drive the boot disk - which means reinstalling the OS and programs!
My questions are: Do I really have an SCSI drive in my system?
If so, how do I add a second hard drive (what kind of drive should I buy?)
Thank you very much!
