Booting from IDE Hard Disk on ML350 G3

Our server is configurated to boot from Boot Controller.

Few minutes ago I have installed W2K Server in IDE Hard Disk but I don't know how to do to boot from this new IDE Hard Disk.

How can I do?

Thank you,
Jaime

You need to install a new IDE controller, a good quality one like Adaptec, one that can controller its insertion into the boot strap. THEN you can use IDE drive in conjuntion with the onboard SCSI and even RAID.

I'll install SmartArray (possibly 5300 Series, see attachment) on this server.

I need to install optional IDE PCI Controller Card to boot W2K from IDE HDD but before to do it I need warranty if both cards (SmartArray and IDE) are compatibles.

Could you recommend optional compatible IDE controller? Or where should I ask to be completly sure?

Thanks again,
Jaime
