After you complete an unattended installation of Windows NT Workstation 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0 using the $OEM$\TEXTMODE option to install OEM SCSI device drivers, the Control Panel SCSI Adapters tool will only display the driver name instead of the full descriptions specified in the TXTSETUP.OEM [SCSI] section.
For complete details on $OEM$\TEXTMODE usage, refer to the Windows NT 4.0 Deployment Guide from:
NOTE: The Deployment Guide is valid for both Windows NT Workstation and Windows NT Server.
The absence of the full description in the SCSI Adapters applet is because of the Key Name not being specified in the [SCSI] section of Txtsetup.oem.
The [SCSI] section of Txtsetup.oem consists of three components; the ID, Description, and Key Name. If the last field Key Name is missing, the adapter description is not used properly.
If you click the Devices tab in the Control Panel SCSI Adapters tool, you will see the device name as piixice.sys instead of the proper display name of Intel PIIX PCI Bus Master IDE Controller as defined in Txtsetup.oem.
The Txtsetup.oem files [SCSI] section should consist of three components. The ID, Description, and Key Name.
ID Description Key Name == =========== ======== piixide = "Intel PIIX PCI Bus Master IDE Controller", piixide
NOTE: The ID and Key Name are the same.
The information provided below is an example of an improper Textsetup.oem file. Note the missing Key Name in the [SCSI] section.
[Disks] d1 = "Intel PIIX PCI Bus Master IDE Controller", \disk1.nt, \ [Defaults] scsi = piixide [SCSI] piixide = "Intel PIIX PCI Bus Master IDE Controller" <-- Missing key name [Files.scsi.piixide] driver = d1,piixide.sys, piixide inf = d1,oemsetup.inf
To correct this problem, you need to add the Key Name to the entry under the [SCSI] section.
This Texsetup.oem file below is configured properly to display a full Description. Note the addition of the Key Name.
[Disks] d1 = "Intel PIIX PCI Bus Master IDE Controller", \disk1.nt, \ [Defaults] scsi = piixide [SCSI] piixide = "Intel PIIX PCI Bus Master IDE Controller", piixide [Files.scsi.piixide] driver = d1,piixide.sys, piixide inf = d1,oemsetup.inf
