MINIX HDF image trouble with SCSI and XT drives.

As the topic said.
I am using the A590 ROMs (v.7), I have created a 21Mb HDF file, and used RDB and then set the manual geometry option to reproduce the format of a WD93028 hard disk (782 cylinders, 2 heads, 27 sectors). This hard disk is pre-configured in the A2091 install disk, and I choose the WD93028 configuration. At reboot the drive is apparently recognised (DH0:NDOS) but then when I try to format it, I get the "not a dos disk" alert at the end.
A similar thing happens when using KS 2.04 and 2.04 Install disk.
So...how the heck is this supposed to work? Does anyone have an hdf image that works with XT protocol pre-configured?
I ask because I am trying to install Minix; the SCSI protocol doesn't seem to work for some reason, so I want to try the XT interface.

Thanks in advance,
Antonio
