Having problems with your IBM xSeries 226 Server ?

I've installed a ServeRAID 6M SCSI adapter in an xSeries 226 from IBM and installed Win2k3 Std from the CD. Upon the first reboot, it cannot find the OS. How do I set the server to boot from the ServeRAID adapter in slot 5 instead of looking for an array on the HostRAID adapter on the motherboard?


Answers :

Would you please specify the model of your server? Is it 8488 or 8648? These are the 2 models of the x226 server.
