Hello
I am trying to install windows 2000 on a new system (P4 2.8 GHz) with only one SCSI drive...

The windows installation couldn't find a drive to install...

I tried using th eoption F6, but I got an error ...

It is my first time to install a windows version on SCSI drive... I am sure that I am missing something to do...

Can you help me please..
I am willing to give you any information you need...

Thank you in advance

Hi, did you have the floppy for the scsi device at the time you used the f6 key?

After pressing on the F6 key
I am getting the following message:
Setup was unable to load suppoort for the mass storage device you specified.
...
the specify additional SCSI adapters, CD-ROM,...... press "S"

but when i press on the "S", I am getting the following error:
An expected error(0) ocured at line 962 in D:\nt\private\ntos\boot\setup\oemdisk.c
press any key to continue.

I already build a disk from a CD for my SCSI adapter, but I don't know when the system will ask for it...

Thank you

Dany

you need to boot from cdrom and then press f6 to add the drivers for the scsi drivers.

do you have the drivers disk for the scsi or raid array?

An expected error(0) occured at line 962 in D:\nt\private\ntos\boot\setup\oemdisk.c
press any key to continue.

I found the solution for this problem:

for an unknown reason my drive A was disabled. so when windows installer tried to access this drive it returned me this error:

An expected error(0) occured at line 962 in D:\nt\private\ntos\boot\setup\oemdisk.c
press any key to continue.

All what i did is i reset my Bios so my drive A was active again and i did install my windows 2000 on my SCSI drive

Thank you for your help

I question what you did because you never mentioned having a problem with the floppy drive or even inserting the disk that I asked you if you had.

how did you come up with this remedy?

please explain.

what i did was simple:

First i was not aware about any problem with my floppy, i just discovered that...
Second, i had a feeling that my CD (windows 2000) contains few errors while he is trying to access some locations

For this reason i had to choices: get another windows 2000 or try to install windows 2003 but i prefered the second option...

when i couldn't install windows 2000, I did install Windows 2003 (evaluation copy) ...
Windows 2003 didn't ask me for any drive to insert or any driver for my SCSI...

After installation ,  i tried to access to drive a and see what is inside my drive A,
Drive A was unaccessible... so i checked the Bios and i see that this drive was disabled...

I enabled this drive and I tried again as what i did the first time, I pressed F6 and here we go, the system asked me to insert the disk into the drive A and I didn't see the error...

thank you

Dany
