I purchased a computer and picked it up Friday end of day. When I fired it up at home, the motherboard ran through the AMI BIOS bootup no problem, then flashed a message:
NO DRIVE ATTACHED TO THE FASTTRACK CONTROLLER -> Bios Not Installed
Then the motherboard powers down.
The system has a Soltek SL-865Pro FGR Motherboard, with 1 200 GIG Western Digital IDE Harddrive. There are no scsi devices in the system
I know that this caused because the Promise FastTrack IDE RAID Controller it not finding a SCSI Bios (there are no SCSI devices present) - hence the message about (SCSI) BIOS not found.
Do you know how I can disable the FastTrack SCSI controller so it doesn't try to find a SCSI Bios?
I haven't seen any reference in the motherboard manual about a jumper that can do this. I can't update the BIOS because the motherboard powers down with 3-4 seconds of start up, doesn't even get to loading the operating system with I would need to do in order to update the Flash memory in the BIOS' EEProm chip. I can get into the BIOS setup utility but only for 1 second before the motherboard shuts down - Not enough time to try to change the configuration.
