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. 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,
