Re: SCSI isn't recognized

I believe.. try this...

go into card bios for the SCSI card.. and on each ID device.. turn UW
negotation for those ID devices that don't require it.. and if say ID #0 is
a UW scsi drive.. then leave UW negotation on.. once you done that save the
settings to the UW card.. and retry linux..

I think I say a mate do this, as he had all the devices set to UW negotation
even for stuff that is not UW and it did this same thing.. So try turning it
off for those devices that are not UW and see what happens.. email me back
and let me know..
