OK, since you've mentioned me the first thing I can think of is to check the default section of boot.ini file.

If you want to boot for NT/2000 from SCSI drive your boot.ini has to be sth like:


[boot loader]
[operating systems]
scsi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
C:\="Microsoft Windows 2000"


SCSI : The value of your SCSI controller. If your it has BIOS enabled (probably not) use "multi(0)" instead of "scsi"

DISK : The ID of the disk (zero if IDE)

RDISK : The value of the disk (zero if SCSI)

PARTITION : (1-...) for all the types

The point is, that when you install NT/2000 from CDROM your boot.ini file has default settings and that's to boot from IDE HDD ;)
