When booting up, the logical drive cannot be found although the SCSI hard drive is installed and later stops booting with "BIOS not installed!" I tried booting with WinXP, but it couldn't detect a hard drive so I had to quit installation. Please help!

on computer and enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key. Hold down
the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys in
succession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and also
force the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for the
floppy drive will be set to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable
floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.
There is a 2TB limit with MBR (Master Boot Record), but even a larger drive can be partitioned. So a single 4TB (biggest on the market) drive will look like several drives. External drives that are bigger than 4TB are really several physical drives combined by an array.
go bios press by f 2 or f 1 >change the boot sequence >first boot cd rom >2nd boot hdd. ensure that *********** has recocknise the hdd if not ,should change the cable for hdd.Or can fit it tightly.you can see the hdd from driver configaration.
If the problem would be the logical drives not found it means that your drives are defective. Though it is working but the board on the drives does not. Replace the drives and then start the installation of your operating system.
Check the Boot Sequence again -- if there are any "SCSI" devices listed, enable them, and make your CD-ROM the "primary" boot-device (so that you can install Windows) and make this "SCSI" device the SECONDARY boot-device, and disable the internal hard-drive, so that it won't be used as a boot-device.
You have two options with the WS670. You can use standard IDE (PATA) drives or you can use SCSI drives (up to Ultra320). If you are already using SCSI HDDs in the system, you would most likely be best served by sticking with SCSI for your hard disks and leaving IDE for your optical drives which I believe is the default configuration, but it can be modified when ordering the systems. If you are already using LVD drives, just go ahead and slap another one in of any size. If you want to use IDE, your maximum size will be dicated by the chipset used in the system (information not available on the Dell website).
