The following error is displayed when you run Setup on a system with a SCSI device that is not a hard disk drive and is set to ID 0 or ID 1:

Setup is unable to identify your hard drive's startup partition.


SCSI ID 0 and ID 1 are reserved for SCSI hard disks. Setup treats devices mounted as SCSI ID 1 or ID 0 as hard disk devices. The device given ID 0 or ID 1 does not respond as appropriate, generating the above error message.


To work around this problem, reconfigure the device to ID 2 or higher and then rerun Setup.
