Setting up NT

by NetTek In reply to Setting up NT

This error is all over the Internet. The three most common solutions seem to be:
1. Make sure the SCSI cable is properly terminated (most newer systems are self-terminating). Try swapping cables.
2. Flash the BIOS with the manufacturers latest BIOS.
3. NT is loading the incorrect SCSI drivers. Make sure you use the latest drivers from the manufacturer, and not those included with NT. Make sure when you install the service pack that you choose NOT to overwrite the manufacturers SCSI drivers with the SP drivers.

I have seen this one several times and the way I got around it was to start the install process from the original NT installation floppies. When it looks for the scsi controller files, make sure you have a floppy with the manufacturer's latest drivers. Direct it to use them for the scsi controller and you should be fine. This is particularly common with RAID type controllers...

Good luck, hope this helps!

I did not do it all over again, I used the setup disks and instead of making a fresh install i ran the upgrade option and it told me that the driver in the Original adapter was old , i upgraded it and after this setup completed.
I am up and Running.
thanx Man.
