Problem to boot in SAN with Brocade 4024 in Access Gateway mode

The BootBios in the HBA (Emulex 1105) card is very slow. It takes very long time for the HBA to the boot from disk (27 sek) (WIndows 2003) attempt to start on drive C:.
During installation i often got a blue screen

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut downto prevent damage
to your computer.

If this is your first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps.

Check for viruses on your computer. remove any newly installed
hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive
to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then
restart your computer.

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF789AA94, 0xC0000034,0x00000000, 0x00000000)

If i restart the server the installation sometimes continues. If i use a passthru san module it works OK.

I have experienced the same problem. What I found was that if I used the W2k3 w/SP1 with the latest Emulex drive, I received the BSOD. If I slipstreamed SP2 into my distribution the problem went away.
