Windows 2000 Server Setup couldn't detect the SCSI drive

By billyl ·
I installed a new Adaptec SCSI Card 39320A along with a Seagate Cheetah U320 SCSI 73GB Drive. For whatever reason Windows 2000 Server Setup couldn't detect the drive for installation. The BIOS was able to see the SCSI drive. The SCSI host did boot up and also able to detect the drive. Does anyone knows why is it happening? Is there some kind of hardware conflict? Appreciate you input!

You need to install the Adaptec SCSI Driver here

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Windows 2000 Server Setup ...

To do this when the first blue screen appears in the Windows Setup press the F6 Key and wait till you are prompted to insert a Floppy with the SCSI Drivers copied to the Root of the floppy. After you have inserted the Floppy press enter and follow the prompts on the screen.

If you don't have a Floppy available you can make a Slipstreamed Install Disc by using nLite

While you are at it get the latest Service Pack for 2003 and add that into your Install Disc. Then follow the Instructions On Line at nLites site under the heading of Guides and your preferred language.
