Boot problem with IBM xseries 206 - SCSI Drive and SATA drive

\015 I have a server with windows 2k server installed in a HDD SCSI, but When a SATA drive is attached for data storage purpose, the system not initialize, because the system recognize the SATA drive like a boot disk.Changing the boot order in the BIOS don't works.\015

Answers :

Not a solution: just a follow up. Did you work this out, as I have the same problem now. For others info: the xseries 206, has 2 sata connections which can be configured as a sata raid. It also has 3 hot pluggable scsi slots. When the sata drives are not connected it boots off the scsi to win server. As soon as the satas are plug in ( 1 or 2, raid or not) it wants to boot off the sata drive. Any help would be great.
Refer to user's manual how to set the boot order in BIOS.
