  • LSI Logic Disk

    So I was trying to build an XP Pro VM last night and I had great difficulty because kept getting the disk not found thing. I tried the BusLogic one and got the same.

    So I went hunting and realised that you had to download a floppy image of the drivers, found loads of references to the issue (including to docs hosted here), worked out all the connect/disconnect at power on stuff but, no matter how many times I tried to install the LSI drivers (which apparently it did successfully) I was unable to find the drive ... eventually the only solution was to use the BusLogic ones which worked fine. The LSI drivers I was using are, as far as I can tell, the recommended ones i.e. P12 12605

    So I have a solution which works but I can't understand why I couldn't get the LSI ones to work so has anyone got any idea? I'm mainly asking because I am told the LSI virtual adapter/disk is better than the BusLogic (no idea why) and because I would just like to know what I was doing wrong

    You're using the wrong LSI Logic drivers. The correct model which VMware virtualizes is the LSI 20320-R
    See the following link to download the correct drivers:

          I purchased/use WinImage for this. The tool is worth it's weight in gold although I don't use virtual floppies nearly as much as I used to. It's a pain when you need one and you can't have one.

            If you get stuck, let me know. I have all the LSI Logic drivers converted to virtual floppy format. I can borrow them to you and I've already done the conversion work.
