Proliant ML530 G2 server installing 2 smart control cards

I am setting up an HP Proliant ML530 G2 server with hard disk drives in both cages A and B. When installing only one Smart Control card, everything is OK. But, when mounting 2 Smart Control cards (one attached to each cage of disk drives), server does not boot up. Tried to put IDE drives in cases 13 and 14 to boot server 2003 from them, did not work.
Please advise what I am doing wrong.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Sabah

I think you have to select the boot controller order for your array controller.

Hi

The boot controller order get set when the server senses the card on a slot (or different slot) it will prompt with a message indicating the controller order is changed.
The reason for the second controller not sensing may be there is a clash between the settings of the 2 controllers, to debug the problem you can just install the card to see if the server boots up.
