Placing commas between command line options is optional.


See "Command Line Options", below, for possible values. NCF file usually located in your server's startup directory must contain a load command line that specifies the location of the driver and any appropriate command line options see Command Line Options, below.

NCF file, refer to your NetWare documentation. The correct syntax to load the driver is: NCF file, follow these steps: NCF file. Make the necessary changes.

RE: Tape drive support again

When you are done, press ESC. Known Issues There is a known problem which occurs during the installation of Netware 4. The DDI file does not contain all the possible slot number options available on all PCI systems, as there are too many combinations. As a result, during the installation procedure, Adaptec 3960D Ultra160m PCI SCSI will report that it is unable to load the driver in Adaptec 3960D Ultra160m PCI SCSI given amount of time. This is because the DDI file does not contain any slot options, which causes NetWare not to load the driver.

Note, however, that this is not an error. The user simply needs to go to the console screen and manually enter in Adaptec 3960D Ultra160m PCI SCSI correct slot number and installation will continue. A second known problem exists that will hang the server after loading the host adapter device driver. When a new piece of program is installed on your system, that program is added to the list in Programs and Features. When you want to uninstall the program, you can go to the Programs and Features to uninstall it. Open Programs and Features. Windows Vista and Windows 7 Click Start, type uninstall a program in the Search programs and files box and then click the result.

Windows 8, Windows 8.

Method 2: Most of computer programs have an executable file named uninst Find uninstall. Method 3: System Restore is a Adaptec 3960D Ultra160m PCI SCSI which comes with Windows operating systems and helps computer users restore the system to a previous state and remove programs interfering with the operation of the computer. The data transfer occurs at the full speed initially. If the test fails, the initiator lowers its speed and repeats the test. In this manner, a compatible speed will be found and locked in before user data transfers begin. The default setting is Boot Only. The following choices are available.

If you want to be able to remove media while the drive is on, install your removable-media device driver and set this option to Disabled. In this situation, software drivers are needed because the drives are not controlled by the BIOS. In some Adaptec 3960D Ultra160m PCI SCSI, selecting an option displays another menu.


The Format Disk option destroys all data on the hard-disk drive. Most SCSI disk drives are formatted at the factory and do not need to be formatted again. If the utility finds bad blocks on the media, it prompts you to reassign them; if you select Yes, those blocks are no longer used. Adaptec 3960D Ultra160m PCI SCSI you changed any 78xx series host adapter settings, you are prompted to save the changes before you exit.

At the prompt, select Yes to exit, and then press any key to reboot the system. Troubleshooting for Windows NT The boot manager for Windows NT contains recovery logic to allow you to return to the last known good configuration. If you have changed your host adapter configuration and Windows NT Adaptec 3960D Ultra160m PCI SCSI longer boots, perform the following steps to recover it: Undo any hardware changes that you have made to the system since it was last operational. For PCI cards: For CardBus cards: Driver features include support for twin and wide buses, fast, ultra or ultra2 synchronous transfers depending on controller type, tagged queuing and SCB paging. Most modern motherboards perform the initialization correctly and work fine with this option enabled.

For systems that store non-volatile settings in a system specific manner rather than a serial EEPROM directly connected to the aic7xxx controller, the BIOS must be enabled for the driver to access this information. This restriction applies to all EISA and many motherboard configurations.

Performance and feature sets vary throughout the aic7xxx product line. The following table provides a comparison of the different chips supported by the ahc driver. This package supports the following driver models:Adaptec AIC, AIC, AHAD Ultra/m PCI SCSI Controller(NT ).
