Hi swapsthegreat,

The boot error message is "Please insert the system boot disk".

So how do you boot it now? How do you access the SCSI drive?

Usually this is a BIOS thing. If no IDE devices are present, the machine can boot from a SCSI device, provided the host adapter has a BIOS and that the bootable HD is ID 0 (or 1). Most modern computers allow for a BIOS option to boot from SCSI, even if there are IDE devices present. If you don't have this option, the IDE device WILL be the boot device, even if you have a bootable SCSI drive.

Possibly the situation can be tweaked with some kind of boot manager.

OK thanks for resolving the Q! You mods are a great resource!
I find it hard to accept that some users do create problems for themselves by staging a complicated setup and then expecting it all to run flawlessly when the basic parameters (like O/S) are altered and messed up beyomd normal limits. If they could stick to a credo of "one computer - one O/S" and for service purposes "one computer - one service", we'd be out of a job here at EE.
