Subject: Big SCSI problem


I am trying to install Windows NT 4.0 with a SCSI adapter and SCSI 40 GB Hard drive. During the initial part of the setup NT sees my Adaptec SCSI adapter and requests for the install disk and after installing the adapter it says 'Cannot find any device of mass storage' and the setup procedure ends right there and the computer reboots again. I have tried the Ctrl+A function for the BIOS setup for the Adaptec SCSI adapter and checked the SCSI ID Nos and the Adapter recognizes the hard disk with the SCSI ID 0, it which it is normally set to. I am not able to proceed any further as I have run out of ideas. I have checked the active cable terminator and it seems to be perfect. All other jumper settings on the hard drive are as per the default and as recommended by the SCSI adapter documention. You have to help me get further. I also need to partition the hard drive 50:50. Thanks

System configuration:
Adaptec SCSI adapter - Ultra 19160 with active cable terminator SCSI hard drive - Seagate Cheetah, 36.8 GB, Model ST366706LW, 10000 rpm, SCSI ID 0 CPU - Pentium III 1 Ghz
RAM - 1024 MB P133

Are you trying to install NT Server? I’m not exactly sure what this means…

“The Adaptec SCSI Card 19160 is not supported in server environments.
View the Technical Specifications for a list of supported operating systems.”
But it might explain the problem. Larry
