Anyone know how to disable a scsi drive in Windows?

Recommended Posts

I need to be able to hide or disable a scsi drive, while keeping other scsi drives visible/mounted, in Windows 2K or XP. Any ideas? I use an LSI single channel controller, and there is no problem disabling scanning for a particular device so that is does not show up in the scsi device list in the BIOS, but when Windows starts, there it is.

I can always physically disconnect the particular drive, but that's not too elegant!

Thx,

Noel

Device manger does this.

Really, how? Saw no options to disable the drive in device manager, but did select "Uninstall". When I rebooted, the drive was still there. I would have thought the LSI BIOS would have given an option to disable the drive, but I'm not seeing it.

I just disabled a drive a week ago in Device Manager.
What kind of drive (PATA, SATA, SCSI, SAS?) and on what controller?

I see it for some setups, but not for others...
