Has anyone managed to get a Maxtor XT-1065 HD to run on 
a 3B2? The drive will formatt up, but the system will 
respond with a  Could Not Access Controller message when
it tries to boot up from the hard disk.
 The system will allow you to go as far as getting the
core utilities on the HD.
 I know the drive to be 7 heads, 918 sectors. I don't
know the device #, but that should be irrevelant.
 There was a rumor that there is a modification that needs
to be made to the drive get it to work.
