I have a IBM Portable Drive Bay 2000 PCMCIA and trying to install XP on my X21 from it. When I put my XP Pro CD in, it runs but don't read on my X21. Is there a Boot disk for the bay 2000 to read?

Windows XP does not have the native device driver for this device.
Code:
Symptom
The Portable Drive Bay and Portable Drive Bay 2000 (with the PCMCIA connection) will not detect during a setup boot disk installation.

Solution
Use the setup boot disks and the Portable Drive Bay 2000 with the USB connection.

Additional information
This driver is not included in Windows XP. The Portable Drive Bay with pcmcia connection is not supported. However, if the user is installing with the setup boot disks and the Portable Drive Bay 2000; then the USB connection is supported.

ok try this, if it's not for the 2000 it should get you in the right direction. I do have the old external IBM PCMCIA boot disk and drive, if you were really stuck I know that could work, I think it's what I modded to get the untrabay 2000 disk to work.

If you mean to install from it, the problem isn't what's in the bay; it's the bay itself that doesn't have a driver (more specifically the PCMCIA card). Aside from going the USB route Harryc pointed to you might be able to use a floppy disk with F6 to load a driver or create a custom XP install CD with the driver slipstreamed in.

If you mean just as an extra drive that will work but you probably need to install the driver and it may not work with an unpartitioned drive; I think you need to partition/format the drive before putting it in the Portable DriveBay.
