|Being a packrat, I have in my possesion a very interesting little ISA board that once belonged to an IBM PS-1. It's an 8-bit proprietary SCSI board that controls a 104 MB SCSI drive (which convienently enough for testing purposes has Win 3.11 installed on it with Office and everything). The beauty of this little card is that it supplies the power for the hard drive as well with a cable running right off the board, so I figured this was a perfect way to get this thing up and running just to see it do something. I hooked it up, disabled the IDE controller in the BIOS, and even disabled drive C. I set the boot order to "SCSI, C" and saved it all.|
Booting up, I now get what I expect, a little message about the Seagate and it's controller's BIOS revision. I also get the "1 SCSI drive found." as expected. However, the WSP /still/ boots to the stupid demo instead of off the SCSI drive.
Not that this is important seeing as a 104 MB drive isn't big enough to be useful and the card is older (and possibly less technologically advanced) than a hypercolor t-shirt, but I'm sort of intrigued now. Any suggestions or should I send this card to that great big parts bin in the sky? I'll get you my WebSurfer! And you're little IO too!
