BeOS for Power Mac


I have a PCI SCSI interface card (or DVD card, or Media 100 card, or other funky PCI card) installed. Could that cause the BeOS to not boot?

In general, while PCI cards will not be usable under the BeOS until there is a native BeOS driver available, they should not cause the BeOS to have problems booting.

We are working with developers to create drivers for popular PCI cards, and plan to offer native support for some SCSI cards ourselves, in a future release or update to the BeOS.

In the meantime, if you have a PCI card (or SCSI device) which prevents the BeOS from booting, we would very much like to hear about it. Please send us the details using our Customer Support Form:
