Did you check the literature that came with the drive? It should specify a bootable SCSI ID, often zero. Also check CMOS option, you want to boot SCSI before IDE.

Said SCSI system should have some drivers on floppy.

Then you boot the XP SP2 CD, and use the F6 key to feed it the floppy.

You can't imagine how many people today will stumble on this one.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
