Question about Adaptec (2120S) SCSI Controller
I have an HP ML150G2 server and the mainboard got defected after a year. I got a new mainboard, but the problem seems to be that I had RAID 1 on the old mainboard - with the adaptec 2120S SCSI controller - so the RAID configuration is not found on the new mainboard, so now if I boot up with the old 2 hard disks, I get "SCSI BIOS not installed" and then "No operating system found". The hard disks are still functional, because I have an identical server and they boot normally in that server.
Can I add the BIOS/RAID configuration without formatting the hard disks?
Or can I rebuild the SCSI BIOS from the hard disks?
there are 2 menus for the scsi adapter, both accessible with Ctrl-A. the 2nd one shows something like this:
But none recognizes the hard drives. Although they are recognized while booting.
my guess is no but since i haven't dealt with this type of server i'm going to suggest you go to hp.
if you just goto hp.com and search on live chat and a link will come up.. they should be able to help unless it's too old since i'm not sure what generation we are on now..
good luck, hope this helps a little..d
