RE: Adding an 80G Seagate IDE drive....



thanks...

but i'm pretty sure this isn't the problem... i have an 80G by itself in a
similar server (same bios) with no problem. the issue seems to be with
installing two drives...

thanks...

Check the date of your BIOS.  If it is earlier than July 2001, you may
need an update to allow for the large (>32GB) disks.  I had to before I
could install my 80GB Western Digital.  My earlier BIOS date for in
2000.
