Re: SCSI Controller disk boot failure

It is now old SCSI devices. In any case it is complicated enough in time to connect SCSI, you installed the driver that comes with the ADAPTEC card ?

Yes older SCSI configured under DOS. It is a CD that comes with the Adaptec card? Look what is on the CD. copy the files to C: and then edit the file config.sys putting those names in there

Re: SCSI Controller disk boot failure

If the above errors just started occurring and you did not have your computer open or changed any of its components

If you did have your computer apart and were making changes, this is what you should check:
  1. Make sure that the hard drive power connector and ribbon cable are connected.
  2. Run the BIOS setup program and make sure the drive and the controller are enabled. Also, make sure the drive has the correct parameters; most likely you can try the auto detect feature.
  3. For IDE drives, check the jumper settings of all of the IDE devices, especially the master, slave or stand-alone jumpers.
  4. For SCSI drives, check the jumper settings of all SCSI devices. Make sure the primary hard disk is set to SCSI ID 0. Check during POST to see if the SCSI BIOS is loading and finding any SCSI devices. If not, check the host adapter installation including IRQ, DMA and I/O settings.
  5. Make sure all device drivers have been installed correctly.
  6. Swap the controller card, cable and hard drive, one at a time.

Re: SCSI Controller disk boot failure

sometimes the file exists but hidden so you can not see. Unless you checked in "File Option", show hidden files and folders. If not, you can edit with Notepad only. It does not work with Word or WordPad. Click on the Notepad to Start \ Programs \ Accessories \ Notepad. The program opens, you tapes the following command: Device = C: \ filename and you stored in C: the name Config.sys If there are so many names of files, you types as many lines of command
