3 - Description

---------------

This disk contains drivers for the Initio INI-9100U/UW, 

INI-9200U/UW, INI-9400U/UW and the INI-9520U/UW family

of SCSI host adapters.  



4 - MS-DOS

----------

The DOSSETUP.EXE program installsthe 16bit ASPI drivers,

SCSI CD-ROM driver and the MicrosoftCD extensions. This 

program will automatically create or modify the 

AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files on your hard drive.  

To complete CD-ROM installation, you will need MSCDEX.EXE 

pre-installed on the hard drive or on a floppy disk.  

MSCDEX.EXE is on MS-DOS 6.2x setup disk number one.  Be sure 

that you know the location and the path of MSCDEX.EXE prior 

to running DOSSETUP.EXE. The hard drive will need MS-DOS 

6.xx installed or it will need to be formatted with the /s 

option (i.e. - bootable format) prior to running Initio 

DOSSETUP.EXE.  From the x:\ DOS prompt type "DOSSETUP" 

and press "enter". NOTE: x = drive letter of floppy drive 

used. After DOSSETUP.EXE completes, be sure to reboot system 

so changes take effect.



5 - Windows 95 and OSR2

-----------------------

This procedure applies to the installation of Windows 

95 from CD-ROM utilizing the Windows 95 Upgrade, 

Windows 95 OEM full version or Windows 95 OSR2 (OEM 

Service Release 2) CD-ROMs.  The following will prepare 

a blank hard drive, load the required drivers and 

modify the system files to provide SCSI CD-ROM support.


Note: Installation from Windows 95 Upgrade CD will 

require the use of the first setup disk for Windows 3.1x 

or Windows for Workgroups 3.1x. For an upgrade vs. a new 

installation see next section.


Format boot partition with /s option and then reboot 

from hard drive. Run DOSSETUP.EXE and reboot system - 

See MS-DOS section. Insert Windows 95 setup CD-ROM 

and run setup. Windows 95 setup will run SCANDISK, and

some installations will require HIMEM.SYS to be loaded 

on the hard drive and will also require the following 

line in CONFIG.SYS "DEVICE=C:\HIMEM.SYS" (This line will

require the path for the file if it is not in the root

directory). If a HIMEM.SYS error is encountered when 

SCANDISK is executed; the above fix will need to be done 

prior to running Windows 95 setup.  HIMEM.SYS is on the 

MS-DOS installation disks. To extract the file, refer to 

your MS-DOS documentation. 


Install Windows 95 following normal procedure. After Windows 

95 is completely installed, reboot system. After system boots, 

run "CONTROL PANEL" and then double click "SYSTEM" and select 

"DEVICE MANAGER" tab.  In Device Manager select "OTHER DEVICES" 

and then select the Initio host adapter.  After selecting the 

host adapter, click on "PROPERTIES" and then select "DRIVER" 

tab. Click on "Update Driver" button.  The new miniport driver 

is located on Initio Driver Disk 1 in the WIN95 directory.  

After the new driver is loaded, exit Windows 95 and reboot system. 


6 - INI-9200U/UW, INI-9400U/UW, and INI-9520U/UW

------------------------------------------------

The INI-9200U/UW, INI-9400U/UW, and INI-9520U/UW host adapters are

multi-function host adapters that utilize a PCI-to-PCI bridge.  These

host adapters pack multiple PCI SCSI or Fast Ethernet devices on a

separate PCI bus behind a dedicated PCI bridge.  In order for

INI-9200, INI-9400, and INI-9520 adapters to work, the system

Motherboard needs to have support to PCI-to-PCI bridge devices.


To find out if your system supports the Initio multi-channel

host adapter family, plug the adapter in the system and turn it

on.  If the Initio BIOS banners fail to display, or if you receive

a "PCI Configuration Error" message, your system may not support

the PCI v.2.1 specification properly.


Each of the multi-channel adapters from Initio are basically

multiple SCSI cards or Fast Ethernet cards combined on a single

PCI card.  When installing the SCSI host adapter driver, it needs

to be installed once for each of the SCSI channels present on the

multi-channel card.  To make this simpler, having the INI-9200U

card in a PCI slot in your system is the same as having two

INI-9100U on secondary dedicated PCI system bus while still using 

one PCI slot.


7 - INI-9520U/UW Network Device Drivers

---------------------------------------

The INI-9520U/UW Network device drivers are located on a separate

floppy disk.  To access README files on the network setup and

installation, insert the LAN driver disk in your floppy drive and

type:  "SETUP /README" at the floppy drive prompt.


8 - INI-9520U/UW Troubleshooting

--------------------------------

The INI-9520U/UW uses two interrupt lines, #INTA and #INTB.  #INTA

is used for the two SCSI channels and #INTB is for the Fast-Ethernet

Controller.  Interrupt setting is assigned to #INTA, #INTB, #INTC,

and #INTD lines by the system BIOS at boot time.  It is strongly

recommended to use different IRQs to the SCSI and Fast-Ethernet ports

on the INI-9520U/UW.  This can be set in the PCI setting section

in the System BIOS Setup. To resolve an IRQ sharing problem relocate

the INI-9520U/UW card in a different PCI slot.


9 - INI-9520U/UW Installation considerations

--------------------------------------------

Below are some considerations that need to be taken into account when

installing and/or using the Initio INI-9520U/UW host adapters:


   9.a. Windows NT v.4.0

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

   When installing the network device drivers for INI-9520U/UW, do

   not install the NDIS drivers embedded in NT 4.0.  Instead, use

   the NDIS drivers provided on the included LAN drivers diskette.


   9.b. Iwill DP6NS P6 Motherboard

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

   The INI-9520U/UW Network drivers for Windows NT v.4.0 failed to

   load on the Iwill DP6NS P6 motherboard.  This problem is believed

   to be a compatibility problem between the Intel 82557 behind PCI

   bridge and the Iwill DP6NS motherboard under Windows NT 4.0.

   Initio Engineering will be working with Iwill and Intel to arrive

   at a resolution.

   

10 - INICD.SYS

-------------


INICD.SYS is a DOS device driver for supporting SCSI CDROM drives.

It is the interface between MSCDEX.EXE (supplied by Microsoft) and

the physical CDROM drive. INICD.SYS must be loaded by your CONFIG.SYS

start up file. INICD.SYS requires that an ASPI Manager be loaded. 

Therefore, you must load INICD.SYS after you load the appropriate ASPI

Manager. INICD.SYS can be loaded with either the "DEVICE" or 

"DEVICEHIGH" command. Below is a list of command line options and 

examples.


/D: /d: This option is used to specify the name of the device driver. 

The name specified must also be passed to MSCDEX.EXE on it's command 

line (Using the same /D: or /d: option). The name specified must be 8

or less characters in length. Valid characters are the A-Z, a-z, 0-9 

and underscore. The name must start with a letter. Examples:


/D:INICD001

/d:mscd001

/d:MYCD01


/T /t This option is used to specify a Time out value to be used 

when sending commands to a CDROM drive. If a CDROM drive does not 

respond toa command within the specified time out then the command 

will be aborted and an appropriate error message will be displayed.

The time out value is specified in minutes. Valid values are 1-9 

and D or d. The D or d values are used to Disable the time out 

mechanism. If the time out mechanism is disabled then faulty 

hardware can lock up the system. Examples:


/T4

/Td

/TD

/T1


/X /x This option is used to eXclude particular CDROM drives. 

Excluded CDROM drives are identified by specifying the host adapter,

target id and lun. These values are spereated by a colon. Groups of 

CDROM drives (or wild cards) can also be identified. Below are 

examples of the different ways CDROM drives can be excluded:


  /X0:1:2  Exclude drive on Host Adapter 0, target ID 1 and lun 2.

  /X0:2   Exclude drive on Host Adapter 0, target ID 2 and ANY lun

  /X0   Exclude ALL drives on Host Adapter 0.




SAMPLE CONFIG.SYS AND AUTOEXEC.BAT FILES


These samples assume that the user has loaded the Initio drivers 

in the following directory: c:\ini910u.


Config.sys:


DEVICE=c:\ini910u\aspi910u

DEVICE=c:\ini910u\inicd.sys /D:INICD001


Explanation:


The first line loads the ASPI manager and the second line loads the 

CDROM driver specifying the device name INICD001.



Autoexec.bat:


Mscdex /D:INICD001



Explanation:


This line will load the Microsoft supplied mscdex.exe file instructing 

it to attach to the CDROM device driver INICD001.



 


11 - INIDISK.SYS

---------------


Inidisk.sys is a DOS block device driver for supporting SCSI fixed 

disks, removable disks and MO devices. INIDISK.SYS must be loaded 

by your CONFIG.SYS start up file. INIDISK.SYS requires that an ASPI 

Manager be loaded. Therefore, you must load INIDISK.SYS after you 

load the appropriate ASPI Manager. INIDISK.SYS can be loaded with 

either the "DEVICE" or "DEVICEHIGH" command. Below is a list of 

command line options and examples.


/R /r This option specifies the number of logical drives 

to reserve for MO and removable disk devices. MO and removable disks 

media are capable of being partitioned just like a fixed disk. For 

every DOS partition on the media a logical DOS drive letter will be 

available. INIDISK.SYS will support as many logical drives as 

required (up to the maximum supported by DOS) based on the 

partitioning of the media that is present when your system boots. 

However, the media may be removed at any time and a new disk may be 

inserted. The new disk may have more (or less) partitions then the 

original disk. The /R /r option is used to reserved drive letters 

at start up in order to facilitate a disk change to a disk with more 

partitions than the original disk present at boot time. The value 

after the /R /r option determines how many drive letters will be 

reserved on a device basis. For example, if the user specifies a 

/R4 option and there are two removable devices attached to the SCSI 

bus, then a total of eight (8) drive letters will be reserved.


/T /t This option is used to specify a Time out value to be used 

when sending commands to a SCSI drive. If a SCSI drive does not 

respond to a command within the specified time out then the command 

will be aborted and an appropriate error message will be displayed. 

The time out value is specified in minutes. Valid values are 1-9 and 

D or d. The D or d values are used to Disable the time out mechanism. 

If the time out mechanism is disabled then faulty hardware can lock 

up the system. Examples:


/T4

/Td

/TD

/T1


/X /x This option is used to eXclude particular SCSI drives. 

Excluded SCSI drives are identified by specifying the host adapter, 

target id and lun. These values are spereated by a colon. Groups of 

SCSI drives (or wild cards) can also be identified. Below are 

examples of the different ways SCSI drives can be excluded:


  /X0:1:2  Exclude drive on Host Adapter 0, target ID 1 and lun 2.

  /X0:2    Exclude drive on Host Adapter 0, target ID 2 and ANY lun

  /X0    Exclude ALL drives on Host Adapter 0.




SAMPLE CONFIG.SYS 


These samples assume that the user has loaded the Initio drivers in 

the following directory: c:\ini910u.


Config.sys:


DEVICE=c:\ini910u\aspi910u

DEVICE=c:\ini910u\inicd.sys /R2


Explanation:


The first line loads the ASPI manager and the second line loads the 

SCSI disk driver specifying that a minimum of two drive letters be 

reserved for each MO and removable disk attached to the SCSI bus.




12 - INIFDISK.EXE

-----------------


Inifdisk.exe is a DOS partition and format utility. It requires the 

aspi910U.sys driver to be loaded in order for it to function properly. 

Upon invocation the initial screen will have two windows. The top 

window will list all of the SCSI devices installed in the system. 

The user can highlight a particular device by using the up and down 

arrow keys. The bottom window will display information about the 

device that is currently highlighted in the top window. Inifdisk.exe 

can partition and format any SCSI storage device that is not being 

controlled by the BIOS, this includes SCSI disks, magnetic optical 

drives, and removable media devices. Each screen is self-explanatory 

so the user should have no problems in using the utility.
