sluggo Posted September 19, 2006 Posted September 19, 2006 I'm having a problem in my NF4 Ultra-D motherboard. I tried two different Adaptec SCSI host bus adapters - a 2940UW and a 2920C. The DFI board will not play nice with either board, but I can put either of them in an ancient ECS K7S5A (Barton 2500+) and they both work perfectly. The Adaptec cards allow you to modify the low-level operations of the board by pressing CTRL-A at some point during the boot. When loaded in my DFI, the 2940 displays the CTRL-A message, but when trying to load, the utility comes back with "There is no SCSI host bus adapter". With the 2920C installed the CTRL-A message never appears and the board will not respond to CTRL-A. Windows XP loads the correct driver and all appears normal in Device Manager, but trying to poll the SCSI bus on either card causes the DFI machine to immediately reboot. I'd be interested in knowing if others have working setups with these two older HBAs. EDIT: I recently installed a Buslogic BT-958, and it has the same problems - cannot access the card's BIOS configuration utility.
