Frank:

Have you set the boot controller order priority to use the onboard controller first and then set the SmartArray to a higher number?

thanks..

by going into system config i was able to reset the raids to a higher boot number thereby making the on-board scsi drive the c drive and leaving the raid for a data only drive. lots easier to admin and backup thanks
