installing new harddrive in win2000 server

by malesefx / November 4, 2010 7:02 AM PDT

my server has 4 SCSI harddrives itself and each of is labeled(partitioned) as C,D,E,F.. (OS is running on C)
I wanted to add 5th SCSI harddrive, apparently win2000 did not recognize it,however when I hit F6 on the booting, I am able to see it.It seems OS is not seeing, but bios is seeing.
is there anyway to do install new harddrive?

You didn't tell the forum

If you partitioned and formatted the new drive. This is not to slight you but if you manage Windows 2000 Server your entry level course work should have included use of the disk management tool.

what are you saying now?

unfortunately my entry level course did not help to fix this issue. I am saying OS is not recognizing,this means any tool including the disk management tool inside OS is not recognizing.
come with a solution please.

The news is going to be grim. I ran across a bum install of a Windows 2000 server years ago that the maintainer had goofed the install. We had to start over. As you elected to not share the make, model, firmware version of the SCSI controller and more, I can't research if that's an issue either.

Sorry but the clues are not in your post. Remember that replies are all voluntary so you have to make an effort to post all the details that apply to the problem. That is, some will dump the output of some tool and supply 40 pages when the make, model would have sufficed.
