Apologies if this has been covered, I couldn't find it in the archives.
I have a Compaq Deskpro XL from a few years back. Currently it boots
SUSE Linux off of a scsii hard drive connected to an Adaptec 1542CF
card. The card is bootable (obviously). The onboard scsii controller
is an AMD that basically nothing supports. I would really like to
run OpenBSD on this machine. I have the CDs and made a boot floppy.
(The CD is connected to the same scsii card - the Adaptec) My woe is
this, the installer starts but can never find the hard drive. When
it gets to the point where it asks where I want to put the root
partition, there are no options. I have gotten the same results with
both copies of the boot floppy image. Is there a quick and dirty
thing I can do to make BSD see the drive, or should I send along a
list of all of the fun blue writings at the beginning?
As far as the Adaptec, it is set to -enable sync negotiation
-enable fast SCSI
-Send Start Unit Command
-Include in BIOS Scan
for the hard drive. My thought is that one or a combination of these
settings may not jive with OpenBSD, but fiddling with them did not
seem to work - but I may have missed a combination.
Thanks for any help.
