I have an ICL E5 that has one SCSI and one IDE hd. The SCSI is totally blank, no partitions etc. So I took the IDE drive and put it in a working box. Formatted and installed Minix 2.0.0. Put it back in ICL and it says (after going through the BIOS) "BIOS(60) hard drive controller error, status 05H" What does this mean?? Is it a problem that can be fixed? If not where does a SCSI card get put in a Compaq Presario4504 so I can setup the SCSI disk. Oh yeah, it's setup to boot also from a floppy but dosen't no matter if it is UNIX, Linux, Minix, MS-DOG etc. Bad floppy cable?? Any help is appreciated.

PS: DO i have to set motherboard jumpers or something. It's not plug and play. (already setup in BIOS
