SCSI boot overide of SATA Boot in WIN XP
Posted on 2004-03-21
New Gigabyte 8KNXP MB system purchased with 120GB SATA drive with XP Pro installed. Board is Rev 2.0; BIOS is version 6.0, FE update.
I am adding multiple drives from old WIN98SE machine to new. Issue is when I install my Cheetah 10K RPM SCSI drive.
SCSI drive is connected via Adaptec 19160 Ultra2 card. System automatically attempts to boot from SCSI drive instead of the SATA drive. BIOS settings automatically defaults to 'Boot from Add-in card' and will not let me choose the SATA drive - regardless of whether SATA drive is on SATA0_SB or SATA0_Si connector. I believe appropriate drivers are installed for SATA useage.
When I disconnect SCSI drive from 19160, system boots to SATA drive without issue. In this state, BIOS defaults to boot from the SATA drive and does not even offer the 'Boot from Add-in Card' option.
RAID is not enabled (On-board SATA H/W set to BASE in BIOS) given only one SATA drive and does not match size of SCSI drive. Third drive is an IDE which poses no problems.
If this is better suited for Win XP OS thread, please advise.
