IBM xseries 236 boot sequence with 3 logical drives

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have an IBM Xseries 236 server with 3 logical drives.  The OS resides on Logical Drive 3.  When I try to edit the boot sequence to put hard disk 2 (logical drive 3) as first priority, I only have the option of using hard disk 0 (logical drive 1) or hard disk 1 (logical drive 2).  The server will not recognize the OS on Logical Drive 3.  Any ideas?  

If I physically remove Logical Drive 2 from the server it boots fine because now the drive with the OS on it is assigned hard disk 1 instead of hard disk 2.

Also, I have the latest BIOS update installed.
