Despite exhaustive exploration & testing, I have not been able to get Windows 7 RTM to properly run my SCSI hard drives.
Though my XP OS & hardware passed MS's Windows 7 compatible test and my actual 32bit Windows 7 RTM install, recognizes my Adaptec 2940U2W PCI SCSI Host AND successfully installs latest available** XP\Vista 32bit drivers
, my SCSI DVDrom & HD's will not function properly. [** - Adaptec will not update this driver beyond Vista compatibility]
After ""successfully"" loading the SCSI host drivers, both my AHCI SATA & SCSI drives are visible in 'My Computer' BUT NOT in native Windows 7 'Computer Management' & 'Storage' / 'Disk Management' screens for drive management. In fact, when selected, 'Disk Management' loops/hangs & becomes non-responsive and requires a hard reboot to clear.
Has anyone else with "SCSI's" experienced this?
Has anyone with any brand / type of SCSI controller & drive combo, succeeded in BOTH installing & properly running same?
Does anyone know if the upcoming 'XP mode' patch update will enable 'true' SCSI drive usage within Windows 7?
