Install XP on SCSI HDD - Instellistation Z Pro 6223-CTO

\015 How can I get the Windows Setup to recognize my hard disk? I used nLite to add the Adaptec Ultra320 driver to the XP installation, but it didn't work. Windows setup still says it can't find any hard disks. I don't have a floppy drive on this computer, or I'd get the driver that way.\015\012\015\012Then I checked in the BIOS, and the hard drives don't show up there either. There are 2 36 GB SCSIs, and an Adaptec 7902B adapter.\015\012\015\012I've tried everything I can think of.\015\012Thanks in advance for your help!\015

Answers :

Have you tried putting the drivers on a flash drive.
\015\012
\015\012It is a method I have used to get drivers into the windows install.
\015\012Try it with the "press F6 to install drivers" during the text setup phase but make sure they are the dos level drivers that you try first !
\015\012
\015\012If that fails then try the windows level drivers
\015\012
\015\012Worked quite well on lots of early SATA stuff so you have nothing to loose.
\015\012You might also want to check that the various usb settings in bios are set to legacy etc too.
You will need to load the drivers for your controller card onto a floppy disk. When you start the XP installation you will see a prompt on the bottom of the screen to press F6 (I believe) to install controller drivers. It will install the drivers and allow you to see the scsi drives.

Good Luck
