: 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 can´t 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.
