• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 5.0
This article was previously published under Q75470
If you have an Always Technologies SCSI controller card and are
installing the Microsoft MS-DOS 5 Upgrade, a warning message similar
to the following may be displayed during installation:
If you are using a Western Digital WD 7000 FASST or AT/XT SCSI
controller with hard-disk ROM version 3.35 or earlier, contact your
vendor for an upgrade before installing MS-DOS 5.0.
This warning can also be found in section 2.14 of the README.TXT file
shipped with the Microsoft MS-DOS 5 Upgrade package.
The current ROM BIOS revision of Always Technologies SCSI controllers
is 3.33. The Setup program will display the above warning, suggesting
that you obtain an upgrade. This warning is only intended for systems
with Western Digital SCSI controllers; if your system doesn't have
one, the error message should be ignored.
