    I never heard a combination of SCSI and IDE in the same server. If its possible as it look like in your case, check if SCSI drive or drives chain is terminated properly in Bios or hardware wise. Jamil

Hello I have a query guys on hp ML350 server is that at the end of the inauguration of Windows blue screen appears You change the RAM first and then reduce Alhardat from three to two, but without the...


The system is not designed to use IDE hard drives which why you are getting a blue screen. It is designed to use SCSI hard drives and IDE CD/DVD drives. It might be possible to go into the server's BIOS setup and change the boot device from the onboard SCSI controller to the IDE controller. It is very likely that you will have to disconnect all SCSI devices to boot to IDE, if it is possible.
I hope this helps.

GA-EP41-UD3L problem with SCSI/IDE


Sounds like the motherboard bios is only capable of booting from drives connected to the motherboard's ide connector and not additional / or external ide connectors. Looks like you would have to have 1 HDD and the CDRom Drive on the built in ide connector and the other hard drive on the extra ide connector you added. Although that would probably stop the other HDD from booting. Have you thought about putting both operating systems on the same drive. I do it all the time.

While i am installing win 2003 server OS, i am getting the error that hard disk didn't find in acer alto g710 model


Hello,

You may need to go into your BIOS and make sure it is reconizing your hard drive. If you do not see it, make sure you have the hard drive cable connected correctly and have the latest drivers installed for the drive. (IDE, SATA, SCSI, etc.) Once the BIOS see the drive, you should have no problem. Good Luck

Poweredge 1800 server


Hey,

I looked over the spesifications for the poweredge 1800 servers, go ahead, it will work perfectly but there is one problem in the windows XP setup, you will need to insert / load SCSI or SATA drivers for the hard drive With a floppy disk, or if you don't have a floppy drive your going to need to create a custom windows xp setup cd and add the drivers into it so it can start the SCSI or SATA hard drive and finish the install. without the drivers it might not find the hard drive.

Aside from that I don't see any other problems. You should be able to get the drivers, and everything ese from dell site
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/

Actually I looked over the dell downloads, I see only windows 2000 on the list with windows server 2003, and 2008 and linux distributions.

This could be a 2nd problem, drivers might not be avaialble, or work with xp, but we might be able to get it to work.


So two problems, SCSI or SATA drivers in windows xp / windows 2000 setup

2nd problem is in windows xp drivers, you could try windows 2003's drivers and 2000's and see if they work, if not, then we would have to look for drivers ourselfs from the internet.

So xp might cause headache but we might get it working, windows 2000 seems to be supported perfectly.

Let me know how the project goes
Thanks,
Ekse

There are many configuration settings, although i personally would hunt down an SCSI hard disk, many will fit from many other models just like IDE ones

SCSI and IDE HDs, can they work together?


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.
