ML350 won't boot from SmartArray 641

Hi,

I have a ML350. It has a standard SmartArray 641 card. It is configured to book from a SCSI disk, which it does just fine.

I have now added an Adaptec SATA card into PCI slot 2 and configured a single disc.

Now my machine will not boot from the boot device when the SATA card installed.

My BIOS boot priorities are correct:
1 - HP Smart Array 641
2 - Compaq Integratted PCI IDE
3 - Ultra3 SCSI Port 1
4 - Ultra3 SCSI Port 2
5 - RAID Mass Storage Controller (my new card)

Where do I start looking next please? This is driving me crazy!!!!

Managed to fix it:

There was a 'BBS' setting on my Adaptec which needed disabling.

No idea what it does, or why it now works.
