Iomega was of no help with this: Mobo Soyo 5EMA+, Promise Ultra66 IDE Controller Card has 2 IBM Deskstar ATA/100 20G on Primary channel. TDK CD-RW on Mobo Primary Master. Problem: If ZIP installed on Mobo Primary or Secondary, system cannot find OS and halts (BIOS sees drives). If ZIP on Secondary of Ultra66 card, Win2K hangs during boot and will not complete process. Everything works fine with Win98SE. Any help would surely be appreciated. Thanks - Al -

this is a good win2k site.

maybe you can find something here, until you get some other feedback. i haven't worked with win2k.

your dual booting?
does win2k boot when zip is removed?
are the drivers compatible with win2k?
are the resources that the zip wants compatible with what is being used by other devices in win2k?

some thoughts

V - Thanks for your reply. Not dual booting; each HD has own OS. Win2K working fine as long as Zip is NOT connected to system. Downloaded Win2K drivers for the Zip, still no go. Don't know about resources - will check that out. Thanks for the link- I'll try there also.
Thanks - Al

Opps -- can't check resources for the zip, because cannot connect zip drive and have Win2K successfully bootup. Anyone have any ideas that I could work with? Thanks -- Al
