Hi There

Just a quick question

When trying to install Windows Server 2000/2003 on an IBM xSeries (with a serveraid card which has been fully configured in terms of hardware arrays etc) it gets to a stage saying no hard disks found - aborting

However I press F6 to specify a mass controller driver (driver from IBM) and voila it finds the disks!

I was under the impression that the serveraid card supports int13h calls and would not need a special SCSI driver?

The OS is now built and in the boot.ini the multi syntax is specified hence requiring no SCSI driver, and must be using 13h extensions to boot.

Infact I can load FDISK off a MSDOS boot floppy and it sees the partitions!

Any ideas?

Cheers

Yes the OS needs the driver durring install because it is looking for only known device drivers included in Windows 2000/2003 cd
