Question about Adaptec SCSI 29160 POWERDOMAIN MAC KIT U160 SCSI HD68 LVD EXT CONN (622849)
I?ve got a Pentium 3 server wth an SCSI HD. Due to lack of space I tried to add a 40 GB IDE HD, as slave and as masters. When I restarted the computer it didn?t recognize the SCSI and obviously the Windows Server 2000 OS. How do you combine IDE an SCSI so that they work together? TIA

This next solution is viable in win 98, and I don?t see any reason why it shouldn?t work for you too. If you know of anything I?m missing you should consult someone else. The solution is slightly complex, so I hope I can explain it properly: 1. Create a startup disk so you can format and install windows. 2. Set the new HD as master and connect it to Primary IDE. 3. Disconnect the SCSI and remove it. 4. Restart the computer with the disk you created (with the new HD connected). 5. Go to the Bios settings in order to make sure that the computer does recognize the new HD as the primary drive in the first IDE. 6. Now, FDisk the new HD, set the partitions, restart and format it. Install the OS and make sure it is working properly. 7. Insert the SCSI and restart again. 8. At this stage the computer would reboot into the IDE and see the SCSI/ You may have to change something in the OS settings for that, but I don?t know where. Good luck.
