I bought an IBM eServer x335 on ebay and i cannot get it to recognize my hot-swap hard drive. I tried installing vmware Esxi server, and windows server 2003 on it but the hard drive couldn't be found. I understand it has to be a scsi driver or some sort of software i need to make this work. I looked on the IBM website but nothing seemed to be the solution to my problem. I am a complete newbie when it come to scsi drives. I know there are some of you out there who know exactly what i have to do to make this work. I am desperate please help.

maybe your HDD is not compatible with your mother board. or try to change the jumper setting of your HDD. or your connection is not working.

connection/ compatibility

The hard drive is exactly the one recommended by IBM for this product. It is 73.4 SCSU U320 80 PIN tray option and when i slide it into the hot swap cage, the led lights up green and then goes off. From a documentation i read, if the drive was bad or incompatible, the light will stay lit or the system error led will come on.
