  1. I am able to backup usiing the ASR wiazrd.

    I try to restore, but after booting from the 2003 CD Rom.
    I enter F6 and install the storage drivers.
    I enter F2 and install the ASR disk.
    But after everthing has progressed to the point where NTBackup launches.

    I put the tape in but it is not seen.

    I have confirmed that its because the Tape Mech drivers have not been loaded.

    I followed the Technet information on loading drivers by modifify the
    ASR.SIF and CREATING a file called WINNT.SIF and also putting the 3 driver
    file from the devices driver disk.

    But it still does not see the tape mech during a ASR restore.

    To restore I need to install 2003 completing then over right using NT
    BHackupui restore.

    Anybody know how to cure this????????????????????
