Re: Adaptec 2940 ultra2


I plug the 2940UW(from apple G3B&W ) card in my PMac 9500MP, I try to boot from the floppy, but the installer doesn't see the adaptec card.... Now I make a new kernel with the AIC7xxxx driver (2.4.18-powerpc-smp).

It's possible to install a kernel from the built-in scsi to the 2940's disk? How could I do it (I'm a beginner :) )?

I'm sorry, I'm from switzerland and I don't understand very well english... I'didn't understand what card 2940UW is bootable and what isn't..... My card is a 2940UW sold with the G3 B&W by Apple.

Thx very much

For what's worth, I flashed two 2940UW from PC world on a 7200 with Adaptec flash utilities. This was about four years ago and they still work.
Really. I was wondering if you might be able to flash them with the
PowerDomain firmware, since they are the same card otherwise.
Aehm, to be honest, it was the PowerDomain Firmware. As said, 4 years ago ;)

But you can get the tools from here:
http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/ drivers_by_product.html?sess=no&language=English+US&cat=%2fProduct%2fAP D-2940UW&prodkey=APD-2940UW
The same is available for a 2940uw2 as well. Dig the page.

I got two 2940UW from a PC, plugged it into my 'now dead' 7200 and flashed them under macos 8.x, 9 was not ready then.
It was a try worth since I had nothing to loose :)
