CHS Not Applicable to SCSI and Fibre Channel Disc Drives

Why

In a SCSI subsystem, it is a function of the host bus adapter (HBA) to provide a translation of the drive's geometry for your operating system. Your SCSI or Fibre Channel HBA's built-in BIOS handles all I/O procedures, so you do not define the drive type in the system BIOS, and you do not enter parameters for cylinders, heads or sectors.

What To Do

Set the CMOS parameter for the SCSI drive to drive type zero or the "no hard drive installed" option. This is done using the computer's CMOS setup routine, which enables you to define a new drive for the system BIOS.
