    Hello,

    I am trying to reinstall Win 2000 on my PC. The PC has a 10 Gig SCSI
    HDD. The part of the Windows installation where all the files get
    copied over seems to work fine. However, when I reboot after it says
    'file copying is done, please remove any floppies and restart', it
    cannot find the boot device.

    In the BIOS, I have set the boot order to boot 1st from SCSI, yet it
    still fails. There are no other drives, only floppy and CD.

    Can someone please tell me how I get it to boot from the SCSI device?

    Thanks
