DL145 not booting from SCSI

Hi, we are trying to install Linux AS/64 (but the same happens when installing Windows)on to a DL145. We can boot from CD and run the installation but when it finishes and tries to reboot from the internal SCSI disks it won't recognise them as boot devices. When you reinstall it recognises that the disks have partitions on them so it appears that they installed ok.The disks are jumpered as boot devices. Can anyone tell me if there is a setting to get the system to boot from SCSI disks (we can't see anything in the BIOS)?
The system is a DL145 AMD Opteron with dual channel Ultra320 SCSI adaptor

Hi Pete,
I am told this is fixed in the latest available system ROM.

Re: DL145 not booting from SCSI

This has been solved now, it was a case of updating the BIOS. Seems strange that when you order a systems with SCSI disks installed that it didn't have the latest version installed but hey-ho.
