Blue Screen during install NT

I install the 2100S Adaptec Array Controller in Compaq Proliant 1600 Pentium II 400Mhz.
During the installation the Windows Nt Server 4.0, hang with blue screen.
The message error is INACCESIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE.
Why?
Best, regards

Do you have drives attached to it? It's going to try to be the boot controller (probably not totally controllable either).

If you did not use Smart Start and your are installing directly from NT CD, then have ready a floppy containing SCSI or Array controller drivers. At the very start of installation (black screen) press F5 and you will be asked for SCSI controller drivers, then insert the floppy and select the appropriate one.
