hi. im having a BIG problem here.. Im at a clients, ive wasted a full day. they want to boot from san, but I cant get the drivers for the qlogic fibre card working. here is the full OEM file, please review and tell me where I am going wrong. First off, It says insert disk in to drive a: am i missing something where I can use something else? im trying to use a USB drive. The last line is obviously my USb cruzer drive/ PLEASE HELP, CLIENT ISNT HAPPY WITH ME EDIT I got my lacie floppy drive to work THANKS for that. BUT the qlogic drive sys file says its corrupted... ive downloaded it 5 times... Do you think its actually corrupt? or just the way windows is reading it? And actually, it fines the qlogic driver etc, and then it says "windows had a driver already, would you like to use the floppy, or microsofts" If i choose floppy it says the sys file is corrupt, if i choose micrsofts it says "no hard drive disks found" what a freakin disaster EDIT 2 - issues resolved. first off, diskette driver worked this time. driver from qlogic, recommended by tech support, was corrupt.. used a different driver from their site and im off and running. wow am I thrilled. thanks for pointing me in the right directions guys and gals
I tried that, and no luck... Its just not ever recognizing anything. any usb device, which of course, isnt supported, but tried that trick from another thread, editing the oem file. no work for that either. man i am stuck EDIT - issues resolved. first off, diskette driver worked this time. driver from qlogic, recommended by tech support, was corrupt.. used a different driver from their site and im off and running. wow am I thrilled. thanks for pointing me in the right directions guys and gals
Good afternoon. This is my first shot at nlite. I like the ease so far, except im having an issue. It was actually recommended to me by a dell tech. I have a 1950 dell server, no floppy. I want to boot from san, which requires the qlogic drivers during install,and as you may well know, the installation cd that comes with a dell does not allow you to add drivers during that phase, so you can see your Fibre mounted LUN. THe lun is presented, the card is happy, but i originally needed to slip stream because during setup, hit f6 for additional drivers, it would not recognize my usb floppy. I need to present the qlogic drivers, so nlite was brought up. I create my bootable image, with the folder to the qlogic drivers in there too. works great. Install the CD, it is loading drivers for setup at the bottom of the screen and then it says "the file ql2300.sys is corrupted" This is of course the file I added to the image... any ideas? its a fresh download from qlogics site. I need help, this is a client, and its not going well. THanks Ryan edit.. i found a post about usb floppies, adding this to the bottom id88 = "USB\VID_03F0&PID_2001", "usbstor" #--HP id89 = "USB\VID_054C&PID_002C", "usbstor" #--Sony id90 = "USB\VID_057B&PID_0001", "usbstor" #--Y-E Data id91 = "USB\VID_0409&PID_0040", "usbstor" #--NEC id92 = "USB\VID_0424&PID_0FDC", "usbstor" #--SMSC id93 = "USB\VID_08BD&PID_1100", "usbstor" #--Iomega id94 = "USB\VID_055D&PID_2020", "usbstor" #--Samsung the ID numbers were a continuation from the existing one. FYI, if this is to work, I could really use the lacie line to add for a lacie floppy. here is the hardware ID, what could i add to ID 95 to make it work? please or answer the above. appreciate it folks USBSTOR\SFloppyY-E_DATAUSB-FDU_________7.03 USBSTOR\SFloppyY-E_DATAUSB-FDU_________ USBSTOR\SFloppyY-E_DATA USBSTOR\Y-E_DATAUSB-FDU_________7 Y-E_DATAUSB-FDU_________7 USBSTOR\GenSFloppy GenSFloppy
