Howdy,

I am trying to install SBS2008 on a VMWare virtual platform, but when I go to run the installation, It finds no hard disks. I have mounted the scsi drivers on a floppy, and when I select load drivers, it finds none. I have made and tested three drives seperatly (100GB) on IDE0, SCSI1 and SCSI2. Still no luck.

Any help would be greatly apprectaited.

Thanks,
Matt

What SCSI drivers have tried to install?
You need to install VMware's SCSI drivers, which can be downloaded from:

Hey,

I have tried to install that exact one: vmscsi-1.2.0.4, and when I mount it, windows sees the floppy, but finds no drivers.

You can extract the files with e.g. WinImage.
Click Control Panel / Add Hardware.
Click Next
Click Yes, I have already connected the Hardware
Click Next
Scroll to the bottom of the list of Hardware and choose "Add a new Hardware device"
Click "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (advanced) and then Next
Choose SCSI and RAID controllers and Next
Click the button "Have Disk"
Navigate to the folder, where you've extracted the files from the vmscsi-1.2.0.4.flp archive.
Select the VMware SCSI controller and click Next

Now, the driver should be installed.
