I am attempting to reformat a workstation and having trouble with the LSI 53C1030 SCSI controller. I upgraded the Tyan BIOS (S2895UA2NRF) to the latest version, and downloaded and tried 2 different sets of SCSI drivers for 32-bit Windows XP Pro installation.
I can verify that the hard drive actually is detected by the SCSI controller, and it even attempts to boot the old corrupt OS. However, when I boot to the Windows XP SP3 disc, hit F6 and load the additional drivers, all that shows up are 4 unknown drives.
Prior to upgrading the BIOS the drives would show up. Possibly I am missing some settings in this server-ish BIOS that I'm less than familiar with? Reading the notes of the BIOS upgrades and being 6 or so versions behind, it made sense to upgrade to the latest to ensure compatibility with the latest NVidia NForce drivers. I had a heck of a time getting the BIOS upgraded with the WinPhlash utility, so there is a possibility that went awry, but everything seems fine except for the missing drives in XP setup.
