HELP: Adaptec AIC-7890

Post by Donald Elli » Fri, 22 Jan 1999 04:00:00



Linux:  Redhat 5.1

System:    Gateway/ALR 7200 server
                        onboard dual AIC-7890 Host adaptors
                        2 Seagate ST39173LW disk drives (ID 0 and 1)
                        IDE CD-ROM

When I try to load RedHat 5.1 from CD-ROM the installation program will
not reconize the hard drives. I can access these drives via DOS using
the a ASPI driver.

Two weeks ago I was able to load 5.1 on a Gateway 7000 ( Adaptec 7880 on
board SCSI adaptor) with out a problem.

Can someone give me some help ? Please.

Will 5.2 work any better?

Thanks !!!

1. HELP, Adaptec AIC 7890 on new DELL Poweredge 2300 Server

I just brought and DELL Poweredge 2300 Server, it comes with two SCSI
Adaptec cards, one AIC 7890 with a 9Gb Hard Drive and one AIC 7860 with
a NEC CDROM and Archive Python tape backup. At install, the AIC 7890 is
not recognized although the AIC 7860 is working, loading the RedHat V.
5.0 but when I invoke the Druid utility to create the Hard Disk
Partitions, I receive a No Drive Found message. Where I can get the
driver for the Adaptec AIC 7890 and how I patch it with my Linux Ver.
5.0 OS?

Please reply to
