  1. I have a eServer IBM with raid 0 scsii disk (18 GB only), running WINDOWS 2000 server.
    I installed an ATA (IDE) HD (200 MB) for provide more disk but the system try to boot from the new IDE HD and stop with error. I tryed installing a PCI IDE card but was the same.
    How can I force it for keep booting from SCSII HD?
    Thanks in advance for any tip.:rolleyes:

    Go into your BIOS to set the SCSII-disk to be the boot-disk.
    On your IDE disk, delete the active primary partition (backup any data first), and make the whole disk an extended logical disk, which you can then partition as you wish. If there is no primary partition on that IDE disk, your system will not try yo boot from it.
