What HD are you trying to run in the TX and what's the error?

Is it a hardcard or a separate card and HHD?

Information helps.

It gives an svcadp50 harddisk controller error.

I think that is the silicon valley adp 50 8 bit to 16 bit ide adapter. What size (in MB) of hard drive are you trying? It probably won't work with very big drives. Where are you located? I have a closet full of under 500MB hard drives.
