Replace System board on Proliant 5000 & Won't Boot!

Hi All

I have just replaced a system board on an old Proliant 5000.. I have run the EISA configuration / 4.90 SmartStart CD etc., and everything looks fine. When I go to boot it does its POST Test and all looks well, except the machine doesn't seem to know where to find the RAID5/OS via the Smart-2/E raid array controller... OS is Windows 2000 Server operating system.. I hope that I am making sense..

Anyone with any experience in this field is welcome to give me suggestions..

Thanks in advance

John Mc

The answer was to go into Smartstart and make the Smart-2/E raid array controller boot first as controller "0".. That way it found the OS on the raid array no worries!!

I am all good now!!
