Got around to testing this card. I hope it's just a configuration error. Or i'm using the wrong disk.

I'm getting this screen:

Things I've tried:

different slots (currently in 5)
remove all other cards one by one.
remove the scsi card - system starts perfectly
tried 3 different versions of prodos, even does this with the adtpro disk
check scsi ID. set to 7, no drives
changed dma switch, was off, no difference
swapped out every other card
Sacrificed a virgin to the altar of steve jobs

I'm spoiled by google. I've always been able to just google the error code and go from there. I cant find anything, it's almost as if these machines predate teh internets.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me it is an ID10T error and not the card.

Re: issue with Apple II fast scsi card

Several questions first need to be asked.

Are you referring to the Apple II High Speed SCSI Card?
Looking at your photo, the computer cannot be seen clearly.
What is it? Is it for an Apple IIe or IIGS?
If it is for an Apple IIe, what type of IIe is it?
Meaning the card is to be used for a 65C02 IIe with
128K.
What device is the card attached to?
(Check settings for device of manual)

sorry for the delay, I didn't get a notification about the reply.

IIe. it is a non enhanced one. 128k

I have a pile of IIe enhanced boards around, so I should try one of them?

Yes, as mentioned, 65c02 is required.
