Tyan S3992 MOBO with scsi drives and tape drive

Having issues installing the tape drive on this board. It has a PCI riser in it due to the request for SCSI drives to be installed and they were installed without any issue. The issue arises whenever we put a 2nd device (the tape drive) on the PCI riser. It only detects that PCI slot and completely ignores the OS and gives boot errors. Is it possible to somehow get the BIOS/POST to recognize BOTH PCI slots so as to get the tape drive to be recognized and the OS to boot off of the SCSI chanel in the 1st PCI slot?

    Is the SCSI device self terminating or does it have jumpers for terminators? How many SCSI devices are on the same controller?

Only if your BIOS supports booting off the particular device. You could also try to swtich the two PCI slots. Put the tape drive controller in the 1st slot,and the SCSI controller in the 2nd slot.

Which tape drive is it? Is there a firmware update for the BIOS for that PCI controller? I would perhaps contact the vendor of the tape drive/controller

Plugged in an external tape drive into scsi controller while on and lost the raid configuration the two arrays show but the drives say DDD defunct

Need to Make Intel DG35EC MoBo Boot From a SCSI Drive


In your bios change the boot order so that your SCSI drive is listed in the #1 slot. Save and exit. This will tell your system to always look at this drive first when booting up. Hope this helps.

Tyan S5396 and Thermaltake 1500W


tyan i5400xt.. to test for ground.. pull the board from the chassis and test with a different known good power supply

if the boot works... then you have a power supply issue...

does the board have a post code lighted signal ???

if so.. a bad power supply should goto FF error code

verify you have enough power on the cpu rail with your power supply specifications also

be sure you have all cables 4 pin 8 pin and 20/24 pin connections done correctly.. lastestly check if the board is touching the chassis edge anywhere... could cause a ground

also take and loosen all the MB screws from the chassis.. just let it hang there this will test the grounds needs the screw connections

My Storegtek L80 can't recognize all of its tape drives


That thing required a SCSI terminator pack doesn't it.

If so, is it working properly.

I've had those things go out on me before leaving me to pull my hair out many times.

SONY LIB-81 Error on LCD screen - Drive Information 51


I think this sounds like the drive is having a issue loading and moving the tape in slot 1.
AIT units are known for having this kind of problem.
Try a cleaning tape and then a new tape fresh out the wrapper for a test backup.

if it fails with a known good tape then its time to send it out for repair
