    Could you explain why you need the driver? As far as I'm aware, you don't need it.

You need a driver for the scsi controller not the drive. If the drive is attached to the motherboard directly the driver for xp will be on the IBM site for the model number of your computer. If the drive is attached to a raid card you need to get the drivers for the cards manufactuers site you dont need to pay anyone.

This error message could be caused by a number of things. Generally it's because the program being downloaded is corrupt or didn't download completely. Have you tried a different browser to do the downloads? If it's a very large download you may encounter problems with losing packets. A download manager may help.

Also, you may want to try doing a restore to system restore point to a date when you weren't having this issue. System Checkpoint dates (in bold) are usually very safe points to restore to. I would also recommend a virus scan and if you don't have this utility and are able to download and install it (yes I know that's your current problem, but you can download it to a flashdrive from a friend's comp and install it), I'd get Glarysoft Utilities and run the one-click maintenance which will fix any registry errors. It's free and is a great way to keep your machine running well.

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


Have you tried putting the drivers on a flash drive.

It is a method I have used to get drivers into the windows install.
Try 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 !

If that fails then try the windows level drivers

Worked quite well on lots of early SATA stuff so you have nothing to loose.
You might also want to check that the various usb settings in bios are set to legacy etc too.

HDD detection


What O/S are you installing? You might need to load the driver during the O/S install. Default ID for a scsi boot disk is 0. Make sure the scsi id is set to that id.

Hello, i have a Fujitsu Siemens Celsius R610 PC. I wiped the hard drive and trying to load a fresh MS Windows XP Prof on but it won't let me. Its saying it can't load or see the HD. any thoughts.


In order to fully install windows you need to have the driver loaded for your SCSI controller built into the mother board. Here: http://support.fujitsu-siemens.com/com/support/downloads.html is the website to get the SCSI drivers. Just make a floppy disk with them and when you load windows setup from the disk when it asks you to press F6 to install third party drivers do so. Then just point to the disk and load them up. When windows finishes loading the rest of the drivers and starts the setup process your hard disks should now be accessible.

I have a maxtor 6L080M0 hard drive that has crashed The return code is 7 Is there any way to fix this problem.


If the following determines you have hard drive failure then you may have to purchase a new HD. Follow what is recommended from the manufacturer below. READ EVERYTHING.

According to Seagate the makers of Maxtor, you have a DiamondMax 10 (6L080M0). See below or click here

My internal hard drive may be defective, how can I test it?

Question

My internal hard disk drive may be defective, how can I test it?

How can I determine if the problem is with my system or with the hard drive?

It is necessary to run the SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, or SCSIMax diagnostic before contacting Technical Support 1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283) on an internal drive that may be defective.

Answer
For Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA drives:

If this is a Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA or SATA drive, please download the SeaTools for DOS diagnostic to test it. If the drive is failing, the tests in SeaTools for DOS will indicate as such.

If the BIOS does not recognize the drive or the drive does not spin please reference Answer ID: 48

The operating system will not recognize a drive that is not formatted and partitioned. If you need help with formatting:

  • Windows 9x and ME reference Answer ID: 3076
  • Windows 2000 Answer ID: 880
  • Windows XP Answer ID: 3361
  • Windows Vista Answer ID: 3844
  • Macintosh Answer ID: 492


    For Seagate SCSI drives:
    Please download the SeaTools Enterprise Edition diagnostic.

    For Maxtor (or Quantum) SCSI drives:
    Please download the SCSIMax diagnostic.

    SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, and SCSIMax will test your S.M.A.R.T-compliant ATA, SATA, or SCSI disk drive for media defects, perform a read test, physical head test and ensure the hard drive is functioning correctly.

    If all the tests pass (no trouble found), the problem remains elsewhere in your system. Reconfirm all settings for hard drive jumpers, cables, and ATA, SATA, or SCSI controllers, and disk operating system. Consult your host controller documentation or system manufacturer for assistance with SCSI termination or ATA / SATA controller capabilities.

    The problem of your laptop is the hard disk type. because acer 5220 laptop is using a SATA hardisk that automatic detected or supported by Vista.

In the beginning of windows installation press F6 to install another device or scsi the windows setup search your floppy drive for the sata driver and install it automatically.

    Can't Install Windows XP SP2


    Judging from the age of your machine, it could be a bad CD drive, a bad motherboard, or the hard drive may have failed. I'd start with the basics and remove the side cover.
    Check to see if the processor cooling fan is turning if it has one. Also check the fan in the power supply. Remove and re-seat the memory modules.
