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.
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
