and can't find anything to help.

I have a SCSI cd rom, and it has worked fine till now. I tried changing the BIOS to cd rom then SCSI. I still get the same error:

Boot Failure
Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device
Press and key when ready

I have also tried to d/l the 6 floppies, but it keeps telling me that the system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Isn't that great?

I was told by a hard drive manufacturer that the IDE portion of my motherboard could be bad so I bought an IDE PCI Card. No help because I can't get to Windows to install the driver! Doh!

Please help

If any hardware causes you a problem, you need to disconnect that device and go into safe mode and uninstall the driver.

try to reinstall your scsi drive.
