'Quick and dirty' - go ahead and attach the old drive to the new controller that is ID'ing as the matching ad/~ (if you can do..)


Pls e-mail me model-specific info.

Also - if you can - *before* OS boot starts, try to freeze the POST screen of the machine and get me the info about card ID codes and INT / IRQ assignment at that point. Compare those with dmesg, 'coz OS/2 and the *BSD's have their own probes and can disagree with BIOS.

Likewise BIOS settings - i.e. do you have these set to what *is* or 'AUTO' and 'search other drives'. And if auto, what is is finding?

I hope there's a way because I really need those disks badly. :|

Been there - you may have to juggle some cards to have somthing like a NIC grab an assignment before the new card get to pick and choose. Sure miss DIP switches...

Worst case - modify boot record and fstab.... but *not yet*...

I'll be online for another hour or so...

I solved it by just putting ad8 instead of ad4 in my fstab and creating the necessary entries in /dev. Sorry for the noise.
