Why didn't you come ask me in the first place.

: : Hello
: : I am having problem with my Dell Dimension XPS R400 and a Adaptec 39160 SCSI
: : Card. After installing my new Adaptec 39160 with a Seageta Cheeta LVD-disk
: : labeled
: : ST39103LW I keep getting two errors.
: : First one in computer Bios.
: : It says; Expansion Rom not initialized - PCI Mass Storage Controller.
: : Bus:00, Device:0E, Function:01
: : When I press Escape the computer boots up.
: : Sometimes (Not always) Error two comes when Windows desktop appears and that
: : is a blue screen that says;
: : Could not write to harddrive C. Data may be lost. Press any key.
: : When I press "any key" the computer starts fine.
: : I also tried to start the computer with Win98 bootdisk.
: : If i skip cd-rom support it works fine but if i choose with
: : cd-rom support it hangs the system. Before this I used a
: : 2940U2W and that one worked just fine. I have tried to
: : change PCI-slots and without any other pci-card in the
: : computer but still the same error :-( If i disable the card bios
: : there are no Error but then I canīt boot from my
: : Seagate disk. I also tried to disconnect all IDE channels but still no luck.
: : Neither did it help to reset the motherboard with default values,
: : configuration data or DMI events
: : as I have seen as suggestion before.
