    Greetings, all,
    I have an Adaptec SCSI 2940 adapter with Sony CRX 1455 CDRW. It takes forever for the adapter to post; app. 35-40 seconds. When it finally posts, it says it could non find int 13. Any ideas?

    Was there a second number such as 13,10 or just 13?

    The length will be fixed with the solution as to why it's not finding int. 13.

    If you open Device Manager / hardware do you see any errors? Yellow question marks?

    Thanks for the quick responses! I figured it out in the SCSI bios. It was looking for a boot device. It defaults to that setting. I just disabled most of the options, and in posts much quicker. Again, thanks for the help.

    you can leave most of the settings at their default setting. if you do not have a hard drive attached you should disable the bios. also make sure that you have the SCSI chain terminated properly. if you only have the internal CD attached the card should be terminated ( that can be done in settings) and the CD chould be terminated (there should be a connector on the back to do that).
