tape drive not showing in device manager after installing sbs 2008 in VMware?
Posted on 2010-08-24
I have installed VMware ESXI 4.01 and then installed Windows 2008 SBS on top. No issues have been reported. However, when I boot into Windows and check device manager. I have no tape drive listed?
The tape drive we have is a A7983AT Ultrium 448i . Any ideas why this would be? Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
