Re: SCSI card problem

Boot the SmartStart CD. It contains the System Erase Utility which will reset your server to factory default settings (including erase all connected drives).

7 drives... I've seen that happen when the SCSI address of controller and drive are the same.

Re: SCSI card problem

Check the controller settings. Somewhere there the SCSI ID of the controller can be changed. It should be 7. I believe it is set to the same SCSI address as the hard drive.
