I am installing Netware 6 on a supermicro server with a supermicro X5DPA-GG motherboard, adaptec 2200s RAID controller card, two Seagate cheetah Ultra 320 SCSI HD's setup as a Mirrored array, and dual Xeon Processors. The problem is that after the DOS partition is installed, and after the files are copied it always gives me the same error message (No storage device was detected in this system. Load the appropriate Driver (HAM). Press enter to continue) When I press enter it takes me to a screen that says (The following device drivers were detected for this server. Add, Change, or delete device drivers as needed) Then it lists the device types as storage devices, network boards, and netware loadable drivers. The driver name is IDECD. I have tried everything I can think of the manuals that came with the server say to load aacraid.ham, and aacraid.ddi files from a floppy disk at this point I tried that and it did not work. I updated the BIOS on the motherboard this did not work. I flashed the SCSI contoller card with firmware updates from adaptec this did not work. I have been to the Novell support site that did not help, and the adaptec, seagate, and supermicro sites hoping a technical article would help but nothing has shed light on what i am doing wrong. Ths is the first time I have attempted to install a Novell OS, and it is kind of urgent so any help would be highly appreciated.
