Installing DU8 & Adaptec 2940W

Installing DU8 & Adaptec 2940W

Post by Ron Boli » Mon, 02 Oct 1995 04:00:00

I got DU8 boot disks 1 & 2 off I have a Tyan
Tempest s1462 dual pentium system e/w 32MB ram, Adaptec
2940W, 2 Segate Barraccudas, Viper 5525S, Plexstor 2X CD,
ATI Trubo Pro PCI, and HP 35480A DAT. I am currently running
NT & Unixware 2.02 on this system. When I try to install
Solaris via the DU8 boot disks and Solaris 2.4 CD I get
the following:

1. Boot disk 1 finds ADP interface at 9300.
2. Boot disk 1 searches for remaining interfaces.
3. Working keeps flashing, ..... forever.
4. I never get prompted for the 2nd boot disk
   and it never hits the CD.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have the ATI board in PCI slot 1, and the Adaptec
2940 in PCI slot 2.

take out the ati board until you get adaptec running. did you set
termination in the controller so that it allows externals. right at the
beginning of the 2940 setup
