ES45 Troubles

I have an Alphaserver ES45. It has about 14 drives or so and I'm trying to configure the RAID on it.

Basically you press the halt button when it's booting, then it takes you to the chevron prompt. From there you do "run bios xxxx" where xxxx is the scsi id. I do that, and it runs the bios. When it's running the bios you're supposed to type ctrl+d to enter the configuration thing for the raid.

When I hit ctrl+d, it does nothing and just goes back to the chevron prompt. It's like it's not recognizing that I'm hitting ctrl+d.

Anyone have a work on a es45 before and know what could be going on?
