Proliant DL320 G2 boot problem with attached RAID

We're setting up a new fileserver with an attached StorageFlex raid array. We installed a Adaptec 39160 HBA into the server to with the Raid array is connected and did a fresh Smartstart install of Windows 2003 server.

With the Raid powered down the box boots fine. With the Raid powered up the box tries to boot off the Raid disks and fails. The Bios boot order settings are the default - internal ATA Raid, CDROM, C drive.

Norm, sounds like you have 2 disk controlling devices loading BIOS, an ATA RAID and SCSI. Both need to load a BIOS and the SCSI is taking the boot priority. Look to the SCSI to disable the in BIOS so only the ATA is loaded for boot.
