SCSI BIOS not installed / ML150G2, exchanged mainboard, RAID
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:

Re: SCSI BIOS not installed / ML150G2, exchanged...
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..

You may need raid controller driver for HP proliant ml 350. Copy raid controller driver in flopy disc, insert it in flopy drive, insert cd in cd driver, boot server from cd and start installation process, as soon as you see Press F6 if you need to install third party scsi drivers or raid controller, press F6 and follow the instruction. It will then ask you to select RAID driver file and then will continue to windows xp installation.
If you want to configure raid 1 and install OS freshly then follow these steps.
1) make ready all the required h/w. 2) Swith on the server. 3) when post starts reading SA532 controller press F8 button . 4) you will enter into Raid card bios. 5) select View to know any existing logical drive. 6) select Create logical drive,select both hdd's by pressing space bar. 7) press F8 to confirm changes,save and exit. 8) Enter into bios and set the boot controller order smart array controller as 1st. 9) press escape button and restart the server. 10) boot with cdrom and proceed for os installation. 6)
You have apparently attempted to attach a tape drive or other similar device to a SCSI RAID controller. You will need to get a separate SE SCSI HBA instead. These are pretty cheap, usually just over $100 list from HP.
If you haven't attached anything new, then you should check your cables first and if that doesn't help I would suspect a bad RAID controller.
