Installing a HD Controller
IBM 3500 M20 Server 256MBRAM 3 SCSI devices attached 2X9gbHD 1XTape Drive Running server 2k3.
I have installed a new controller into my system and attached a 200Gb to the primary, i rebooted and this happened.
First of all i removed the cdrom ide cable from the cdrom itself but left it hanging from the main board.
Drive number 0 WDC WD2000JB-OOGVA 190782MB
SET: 1 <0> WDC WD2000JB-OOGVA <PM> 190782MB
All the scsi devices load successfully
Scsi bios loaded successfully
Then 2 Beeps
POST startup Error
Following errors were detected
604 Diskette error
662 Configuration change has occured
162 Configuration change has occured
At this stage i get 2 options i can
Continue; (Into the bios) and there is nothing to do there anyway.
Exit setup; If i do this i get a picture (see Below) to come up which looks like it wants me to hit f1 (2 arrows pointing to f1 gives that away) once i have hit f1 it changes the picture and it points to the floppy drive.
I dont have a floppy i have a cd with drivers on it.
If i hit F1 again it comes up with this message
I999031 Disk Failure or Disk reset failed.
Please any help would be appreciated
