You have to download the scsi driver from the ibm site. You'll need a floppy and floppy drive. When you boot with your xp cd to setup press F6 to install driver.

Link to your IBM. Since IBM have different models you have to type it at the provided link.

good luck

How to install Windows 7 graphics driver for the existing standard VGA

I think the xseries 100 does not support windows 7, I think XP is the latest operating system it can handle, many websites advertise for driver solution will offer you a solution but I am not sure they can deliver, my advise would be to contact IBM and see if anything can be done to help. Good Luck

Ibm server xseries 326

It is not detecting the HDD because the windows install does not have the necessary drivers. On the windwos install you must press F6 or F2 I don't remember which one but it prompts you for them to load external drivers fro SCSI or other type of drives, you must download the right drivers for the type of HDD the server has probably fromt eh IBM support website, put them in a floppy and load them from the floppy into the windows install so it recognizes the drives..

SCSI hard disk is not detecting in IBM xSeries 346 Server

While running the windows 2003 setup (winnt.exe), it will ask for SASI driver, you have to add the scsi driver... then windows 2003 os will detect the HDD.. then it will install..
