SCSI boot device option unavailable on Intel S875WP1-E
Posted on 2004-10-09
I need to boot off an OBDR-compliant tape drive (Compaq DLT VS 40/80 with firmware V064) that is attached to an Adaptec 2940UW SCSI adapter.
The 2940UW recognises the tape drive as a bootable CD-ROM drive (as expected) but then the Intel S875WP1-E motherboard (BIOS P16 build 55, the latest) then goes on to say "reboot and select proper boot device".
While the 2940UW BIOS is set up to allow bootable CD-ROMs, I can't make the Intel mainboard show me a SCSI boot device option; it only allows me to choose from the floppy drive, CD-ROM drive and SATA drive.
Is there any way to force the motherboard to boot from a SCSI device? (like some cheap motherboard with a Phoenix BIOS :) ).
