I have an existing server that has a scsi drive in it, with NT installed on it. It works fine as it is. However, I need to add a hard drive with alot of space. I have a spare IDE drive which would be ideal. However, no matter how I configure the IDE drive to run, as master or slave, primary channel or secondary, I still can't get it to work. The machine detects the IDE drive and assigns it Disk 0. Thereafter the machine won't boot becasue it can't get to the operating system on the scsi drive. How can I make this machine still boot to the scsi drive after installing the IDE drive? Is there any way to make the machine not assign disk 0 status to the IDE drive?
Any help would be appreciated.
