External SCSI Connections

I have two Internal IBM SCSI drives which are detected on boot up as ID 0 and ID 8 and work fine. I then attach an external SCSI pack to the connector on the rear of the machine containing 4 Seagate drives. When I reboot, the machine correctly picks up the 4 external drives as ID 1, ID 2, ID3 & ID 4 but ignores the two internal drives i.e. fails to pick them up. Result is no operating system and it just sits there. Unplug the external pack and all is well. Am I missing something obvious..?

Re: External SCSI Connections

Please make sure the internal SCSI connector is on SCSI PORT 1.
SCSI port 2 and the external are on the same channel.
Go into the F10 partition and make sure the internal SCSI port is set as first for boot order.
Also please make sure the BIOS is up to the latest.
Are there any errors at POST (besides no OS) ??
