Hello,
I am reinstalling Windows 2000 Seerver in an IBM nerVista5600 with Adaptec AIC-7897 Ultra2 SCSI Controller.  I have downloaded and installed the drivers, or what I thought were the derivers from Adaptec according to the proceedures with W2K Server (F6 etc...), and still no luck with finding the HDDs.  Any thoughts about what I am missing here?

Sounds like you are getting a message about no disks being found, right?  If you are following the procedure correctly, I would think you may have the wrong driver.

I'm not familiar with that contoller, but do you have to create a RAID set on it before hand?

Yes I had the wrong driver, yes I have to create a RAID set beforehand and furthermore, I have antiquated software on hand.  I have downloaded the updated firmware and drivers from IBM and am going in again...

Why a 'C'?

No mention of the raid configuration, without which I would never be able to load the OS, even with the correct driver.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I thought I did, "but do you have to create a RAID set on it before hand", but ok.  Thanks for the explanation.
