HighPoint RocketRAID 1640 controller BIOS not booting: GigaByte GA-7n400 Pro2
Posted on 2005-04-26
I am trying to install a HighPoint RAID controller in a new PC using the GigaByte GA-7N400 Pro2 motherboard.
The problem is that I cannot get the PC to boot to the RocketRAID BIOS, it just doesn't appear. The motherbaord BIOS detects the card and it can be selected from the list of bootable devices in the CMOS setup (the others in the list can include the onboard Ite controller and/or the Silicon Image controller when and if they are enabled)
I have tried numerous combinations of the motherboard BIOS settings without success, has anyone experienced this problem or have a solution?
I have also tried a SCSI card which exhibits the same problem and the HighPoint card has been tested in another machine without problem.
