Scebic W600 + Adaptec RAID controller

Postby silversf » Sun Sep 11, 2005 16:25

Hi !<P>I have a scenic w600 computer and I bought a adaptec 1200 raid controller to put 2 hdd in raid. But when I'm stating the computer the controller is not recognize and I receive the following error message: Extension ROM couldn't be initialized .... bus x slot y (the slot number points to controller's slot) and the computer beeps twice. I updated the bios and firmware but the mainbord still don't recognize the controller. Any suggestions, because I have reach the bottom of the idea bag.<P>Thanks.

Try another slot. Also you might try disabling some unused features that use up lots of BIOS memory space like "USB Legacy Support"...<P>
