This problem has been plaguing me for a very long time but I keep returning to it!
I have two scsi drives running on an onboard controller which is set to the default ID of 7.
I have one disk with the os on it and it is set to ID0.
The other disk is formated and it is set to ID1.
For some reason the pc trys to boot from the second ID1 disk.
If I remove it there is no problem.
If I put windows on it, it boots up and sees my original as the slave.
As far as I know the cable has it's own termination on it and both drives are set to allow this.
I would like to use the problem disk (a fujitsu)as storage as I feel it is the more reliable for some reason, seems less noisy and runs smoother etc and my other original has 26630 hours under it's belt.
The controller is an LSI logic 1020/1030 ultra and in the settings there is an option for boot order but this greyed out and not accessable.
Has anyone any idea if I may be overlooking something?
