I have a ST39236LW (9gig 7200rpm) drive and it keeps timing out when trying
to detect the drive in linux, although the onboard SCSI detection has no
problem picking it up and Windows can see the drive with no problem either.
I've tried upping the timeout period in the kernel for drive detection, I've
tried other drives and they work, I've tried this drive in windows and it
My config was that I had no drives on the card when I tried this one, I also
tried it on different Adaptec cards and even dev kernel versions. AND even
different computers all together. *sigh* looks like I'm SOL, unless someone
can tell me different.
I really, really don't want to use this drive in windows. I want linux on it
Thanks to whoever can possibly answer this one.
