I have a nextstation 25Mhz 040 that I'm attempting to replace the disk with a scsi2sd v6 adapter. I have worked through other similar posts and cobbled together a config. However I'm still getting errors when attempting to install OpenStep 4.2 to the system. The install media is on an external plexstore scsi cdrom from the same vintage.

From what i can tell it seems to be storage IO related. "IO error on pagein (breadDiredt)" . Below is my full config. Does anybody have a known good config for this newer scsi2sd card and this generation next station.




Code:

<SCSI2SD>
<S2S_BoardCfg>
   <!-- ********************************************************
   Enable the onboard active terminator.
   Both ends of the SCSI chain should be terminated. Disable
   only if the SCSI2SD is in the middle of a chain with other
   devices.

   <unitAttention>false</unitAttention>
   <parity>false</parity>
   <!-- ********************************************************
   Only set to true when using with a fast SCSI2 host
    controller. This can cause problems with older/slower
   hardware.
   ********************************************************* -->
   <enableScsi2>false</enableScsi2>
   <!-- ********************************************************
   Respond to very short duration selection attempts. This supports
   non-standard hardware, but is generally safe to enable.
   Required for Philips P2000C.
   ********************************************************* -->
   <selLatch>false</selLatch>
   <!-- ********************************************************

   access the second disk as ID0, lun 1.

I did a similar install with the SCSI2SD V5 card a few months ago w/o any problems (both NeXTstep 3.3 and OpenStep 4.2). I have, but have not yet used a V6 on NeXT hardware.

The key part in getting this to work, which you already have in place, was was making sure the drive geometry is correct. From your note, I glean the there are errors both on the SCSI2SD drive (sd0) and the Cdrom Drive (sd5). If you haven't already tried set to a lower max speed that is used for Async and check your termination again.

On Intel hardware running OS4.2, I saw some irregularities with the V6 card when I was working with one last year. Mainly the card slowing down for unclear reasons. I did not attempt an NS or OS install. I have been meaning to go back and check it out again with the latest revision software, but that's not likely for another month or so.
