Subject:   HELP problem with SCSI drive.
Message-ID:  <>

I can't seem to boot up my Dec 3 gig drive.
I am using a adaptec 1540 controller and i have a 840 meg IDE drive hooked up.
When i try and boot it it works fine until it get's to "changing root device to sd0a" then it just sit's there..
I installed using sysinstall on my ide and copying over all the files needed.
At this point i can't make a new install disk because i am using a 2.88 drive and FreeBSD doesnt seem to work with it.
I have no problem using the SCSI drive as a second drive..
But i am getting rid of my 850 IDE and would like to use the 3 gig DEC as my primary drive..I think my controller is adaptec 1540s or something like that.
I dont have the manual for it ..
Is it possible it's a problem with the jumpers?.
Please email me at ASAP thanks.
