installing new harddrive in win2000 server

November 4, 2010 at 13:59:24
Specs: Windows 2000
my server has 4 SCSI harddrives itself and each of is labeled(partitioned) as C,D,E,F.. (OS is running on C)
I wanted to add 5th SCSI harddrive, apparently win2000 did not recognize it,however when I hit F6 on the booting, I am able to see it.It seems OS is not seeing, but bios is seeing.
is there anyway to do install new harddrive?

Someone didn't know about drive fault tolerance when building this server. Oh well.

Did you configure the new drive to NOT do termination? This is assuming you are using an active terminator on the end of the scsi cable. If you are using the 4th drive for termination you need to set it to none and this 5th drive to do termination.

Much better to use an active terminator at the end of the cable.

You have to initialize the drive in the scsi bios once you get termination solved.
Then you go into disk management to see the drive, partition, format it and assign it a drive letter.
