Boot from tape in OBDR?

Hi.
I have HP DL 760 G2 server. I created tape for disaster recovery using TapeWare. I set tape drive into DR mode (LEDs were flashing green and yelow), but server still boot from HDD. CD ROM is set to boot as first in Setup. There is WIN 2000 Server Advanced edition. What else I have to do to boot from tape and get into recovery console?

Thanx.

Matus.

Re: Boot from tape in OBDR?

What kind of tape drive is this? Which controller is this drive attached to?
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
