Question about Computer Servers
Having issues installing the tape drive on this board. It has a PCI riser in it due to the request for SCSI drives to be installed and they were installed without any issue. The issue arises whenever we put a 2nd device (the tape drive) on the PCI riser. It only detects that PCI slot and completely ignores the OS and gives boot errors. Is it possible to somehow get the BIOS/POST to recognize BOTH PCI slots so as to get the tape drive to be recognized and the OS to boot off of the SCSI chanel in the 1st PCI slot?
Only if your BIOS supports booting off the particular device. You could also try to swtich the two PCI slots. Put the tape drive controller in the 1st slot,and the SCSI controller in the 2nd slot.
Which tape drive is it? Is there a firmware update for the BIOS for that PCI controller? I would perhaps contact the vendor of the tape drive/controller
