Hi - I installed windows XP onto a scsi drive via a pci hdd host bus adapter card
but bios , while detecting the adapter controller, would not detect the drive as a bootable option.
My guess is this card is a oem with boot option disabled
(I have read that they have this as a control option)
Is they any vendor or other tool that will enable system to boot.
compaq evo D510
BIOS 68602 v 3.18
windows XP pro oem
pci scsi host bus apdapter card Adaptec 29160 family
compaq scsi ultra3 and tried seagate ultra320
This system had a scsi drive as an option
I have tried ctrl+A at boot but no response
F9 option shows boot options excluding scsi
BIOs setup shows not option for scsi
I had also removed the master ide drive.
any ideas ?
(ps - is just an interesting project - 2 x SATA 3.0Gbps drive in an array set via a pci SATA raid card would be simpler and cheaper )
