Question about Promise Supertrak SX6000 (p29sts600000000) ATA Controller

1 Answer

Windows 2000 Professional will not format SuperTrak SX6000 array.

I got a strange somewhat old computer that it has a SuperTrak SX6000 card on it. I installed Windows 2000 Professional on it and everytime I try to format the "drive" corresponding to SuperTrak array, it does not complete successfully (it takes its sweet time). I tried everything. The drivers are installed, they show in the Device Manager. The drive shows with the capacity of the array but it can not be used unformatted and no formatting will succeed. I even installed the PAM utility in Windows and used it to recreate the array but, again, when I tried to format it, did not succeed.

I tried changing the OS in the card BIOS to no avail. I may be missing something basic here because I don't seem to find a way around it.

Any help will be appreciated.

I cannot install windows 7,no disk seen are there drivers for raid smart array 5I for windows 7? DL 740 G1 , 8 x 2700Mhz+40GB ram , 4 x 73gb Raid 5


Not quite sure what your problem is but I would recommend getting Windows Server for a server like this. The HP site recommends the following OSes: Microsoft Windows 2000,
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter) ,
LINUX (Red Hat, SuSE) or Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Edition. It is unlikely Windows 7 will install on this 5 year old server.

I want to install again the WINDOWS 2000 Professional and i can't do it because it shows a blue image and says that i've to put the win 2000 pro disk on the diskdrive and i put. when i go to the...


What is the boot order in the BIOS? Set that to 1=FDD 2=CD-ROM 3=HDD
While the PC is still on, put the Windows CD in the drive
Restart the PC, watch the screen for a prompt to boot from cd - press a key
The installation will start, you will need to choose where to install Windows
If you do not need to save any data, format the C: drive and install window there.
Follow the prompts the rest of the way through the installation.
You will need to enter the Windows License code at some point.
It is a good idea to change the regional settings to match your location and how you want the date and time formatted.
Most things should be detected and installed automatically, so you are safe to accept the defaults.
After about 45 minutes you will need to restart the PC and then you should be ready to enjoy Windows 2000.
Be sure to go to Windows Update and install all of the patches.

Good Luck and let me know how it goes.

I need to reload Windows 2000 Pro on a corupt IBM Thinkpad.


Assuming you have no data to lose,,,, you could always try to download copy of Windows 2000 Professional and burn it to a CD. Before you do this,,, you have to make sure you have a sticker somwhere on your laptop with your original product key. If you do decide to download Windows 2000 Professional,,, make sure its an OEM copy,,, and of course there is no guarantee that it will be a full copy, or a copy without virus's in it. DO NOT try to download Windows 2000 Professional if you dont have the original product key, as it is illegal. Also,,, do not try and find a product key online,,, that is also illegal. I have to be perfectly clear that the only legal way to download somethign like Windows 2000 Professional is if u have the original product code or key. You can than use this newly burned copy to format and reinstall windows, and than from IBM's web site u can download all the drivers needed for your model

Operating system


You can not upgrade to Windows 2000 server from windows XP Professional. All you can do is to purachase a copy of Windows 2000 server with as much as client license you want. And install it in your system on a sperate partition. Or you can install windows 2000 server after formatting your hard disk. This way you will loose any information on your computer. Installation instructions are available on the internet in the following link: http://www.petri.co.il/install_windows_2000.htm If you are using a simple stand alone machine, your current windows XP professional is the best choice according to my knowledge. All the best
