I am loading apatec scsi controller card in a dos machine.
I get an error ASPI2DOS.SYS Initiallation Failed

The line is DEVICEHIGH=C:\ADAPTEC\ASPI2DOS.SYS /D /Z

THIS controller supports a MOD Drive.   Which does not recognize the media.  Already changed Controller and DRIVE.

Post your entire config.sys and autoexec.bat files please.  Have you tried just Device instead of DeviceHigh?  I assume that this line is in the config.sys file, NOT the autoexec.bat file???

No I have not tried to drop the HIGH.

I will have to type in the files.  I do have a hard copy. I will get back to this soon.

At first glance, your files look good.  I think I would first trying to load ASPI2DOS.sys first, just before Mouse.sys.  If that does not work, try loading it in low memory using DEVICE= instead of DEVICEHIGH=, then as a last resort, tear these files down to where they load, and add one line at a time to isolate the problem further.  Let us know...
