    Hi,

    I have a Dell Poweredge SP5166-2 that uses Seagate Barracuda (4.3gb) hard drives put into trays that are slid into the computer and connected to the motherboard. I want to put another hard drive in but it is an HP C2490A (2.1gb). When trying to install it the first times, bios recognizes it and says it is working properly, but it is not displayed under Win2k's logical devices or my computer. It is however displayed under device manager. So, it does exist but I just can't make it work within my computer. I also tried to make connect the SCSI bus cable that goes into the cd rom into the hard drive, but no luck. Is there any master slave config for scsi devices? My understanding is that there aren't any; only scsi ids. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    You can check couple of things.

    You may want to check SCSI ID(which usually a jumper or switch on the drive.).

    If you want the drive to be C:, check host adaptor which ID is bootable.

    Make sure you have a terminator at the end of the chain.

    Go device manager and check if your SCSI card has conflict with other devices.

    Good Luck,

    TJ
