Hi, I picked up a 9 gb SCS scsi hard drive to add to my computer to perk up the boot up speed - it presently has a 40 GB 5400 rpm hd and the 9 gb is a 7200 rpm. I connected it to my scsi controller - it is a special controller made for my Buzz multimedia card that I have used to control CDRW's before. I booted the system and it recognized the drive but then when I put my 98se startup disk and tried to format the drive the system froze...what else must I do?

Windows 98se might not support the SCSI interface of the card so you may need to boot to a DOS disk and load a DOS SCSI driver to format and install, after the DOS setup of the drive is complete than you should be able to install windows by copying the cab files directly to the drive and installing from there. If you need more info let us know the model of the SCSI controller and we can help you further.
