Windows Boot Manager for BL860c

Hi everyone,

I replace a systemboard for Integrity BL860c because of intermittent video problem (green screen). After the replacement, tried to boot the server but it could not find the hard drive. I look at the RAID configuration, the array was inactive. I reactivate the array and go back to EFI boot configuration menu. Add new boot entry and point to the HDD. When I boot the new loaded boot entry, It won't boot because it could not find the windows system file.

The operating system installed on this machine is Windows 2008 for Itanium. When I tried to reinstall the old systemboard, the it boots up to windows.

How do I input the boot load option in adding a new boot entry? Could anyone provide a step by step guide on how would I configure the server with the new system board?

Thanks!

Is it possible to copy the boot entry of server with old systemboard installed and paste the copied boot entry after the installation of new systemboard?
