Upgrading Smart 2/E to Smart 2SL problem

I am currently running Windows 2000sp3 on a Raid-5 array connected to a Smart 2/E EISA card in EISA/PCI slot. I want to move the array to a 2SL in the PCI slot but after switching all of the hardware, reconfiguring everything in the EISA config, making sure that the new card is running current bios level (4.50A)... I can boot to the Service Console just fine and run CHKDSK with no problems. But... if I try to boot Windows, I get a blue screen saying "inaccessible boot device"...

Infact, if I just move the 2/E card to a different EISA slot, I get "inaccessible boot device" as well.

Any ideas?

Please make sure that your boot controller order is set to first. You can also clear NVRAM and run system configuration.
