I too did felt this type of fault. I did connected 2 SATA devices [HD + DVD ROM] and one IDE HD. In the IDE HD, there was WinXP O/S and with the other SATA HD, i loaded Win-7 Ultimate.
Win-7 is doing perfect, but if I try to access WinXP from IDE, it will boot up well, but when I acess the Win-7 again, and try to open some installations, for eg; Adobe reader 11, it wont work. I have to re-install the Adobe reader once again to work it with.
From this I do understand that, 2 O/S with 2 devices SATA & IDE can't synchronized at the same time.
More to say, Win-XP and Win-7 together cannot be in one system. If so, only the latest version O/S only can be used without any trouble.

Does your RAID SATA have a boot sector? Sounds like your trying to boot from a non bootable configured RAID.

SOURCE: Windows Xp on Intellistation Z Pro type 6221

A restoration disc is not a conventional Windows OS disc (and vice versa), therefore it often cannot be used as if it were a true Windows disc. The restoration disc includes the OS, but it also includes every driver and other software product that came with your system. If Windows were the only item loaded on your system, then a Windows disc could serve as a restoration disc, but these days, using a typical restoration disc is an all-or-nothing process.

A restoration disc is your ultimate troubleshooting tool. Suppose that your copy of Windows becomes damaged from a virus or key applications become corrupted. Symptoms such as instability, crashing, indecipherable error messages, and impaired performance are extremely hard to diagnose by yourself—even if you have the help of a customer support technician on the telephone. If the most common corrective steps fail, you can always use the restoration disc to recover your PC back to its known-good, factory-fresh state.

Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.

Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.

SOURCE: Raid 0 on Intellistation 6221?

That particular work station comes with both IDE and SCSI drive interface controllers. The IDE drive should be used for your OS. The SCSI drives for your data storage. Now, the issue is to get the SCSI to work in RAID_0 as I understand.

You iwll need a RAID controller such as Adaptec AHA-3940AU WD SCSI Host Controller, which may be found on eBay (used) for a very affordable price. The driver software may be downloaded directly from Adaptec, so I suggest you do that in the iterim peroid, and store drivers on a USB thumb drive.

Hope this helps you.

I have IBM Intellistation Z Pro 6221. I tried to install XP, I press F6 for SCSI driver. Then It prompts Press 'Enter' for install or 'R' for repair. Whatever I press it displays No hard disc detected


You need a floppydisk including the Driver for the SCSI or Sata drive - Depending which HD You are using.
If the controller is in motherboard You will find the driver from motherboard webpages.
If it's a separate controller card - You will find it from it's web pages.
XP doesn't support too well sata if it's not the XP SP3 version media.
You may need to change the sata to compatibility IDE mode to get it up and running.

With a IBM 6223 can I mix sata and scsi drives in the same machine?


Yes. you can use any mixture of different interfaces a PC. As long as you have the appropriate controller interface to plug the drive into, and your power supply is big enough to support the drive(s) you're using, there should not be a problem.

The only caveat is that if you want to boot from a drive type that is not part of the PC bios, this may not work.

Such as if the bios is so old that it only has IDE and you plug in a SATA or SCSI adapter, it may take some fiddling to make it boot properly. Many interface adapters have their own bios, and sometimes things are not as compatible as they should be.

Server 2008 is not detecting your drives, because it does not have drives for what ever hard drive controller you are using. You will need to determine which controller your drives are attached to and load the appropriate driver during setup. I believe this system has built in SCSI and SATA controller and often shipped with add - in storage cards. Our came with a promise sata raid controller.
