Abit AV8 3 eye, Boot from SCSI

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.overclocking.amd (More info?)

Hi

I've had some problems with my new AV8 board (Preinstalled XP old computer =
I just moved the disc to a Promise controller I had.). I have a lot of IDE
(PATA) discs, none SATA discs, and one SCSI (160) disc. When I had problems
booting into my old XP, I've was only able to install Win 2003, and not XP,
not even do a repaire (Stop 0x0000007B, 0x00000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).

Now when my XP suddenly is OK, I can't get to boot from any of the other
discs. I've tried every combination I believe, in BIOS. I really want to
boot from my SCSI disc, but don't know how to do it. I hade a Promise IDE
controller, and a Adaptec 29160 SCSI card on my ABIT AV8 3 eye MB. I'm only
able to boot from my XP disc on the Promise controller or DVD player on the
normal IDE controller (MoBo)

Is this something that ABIT have to fix with a new BIOS update? Or, is there
anyone that can tell me what to do?

    I forgot to say that I have 5 IDE Disc, 0 SATA disc and 1 SCSI disc. Almost
    everyone are boot disc with OS on, because of the problem I had earlier. I
    can't boot from any of these discs

    Check your settings on the Advanced Bios page . Line 1 and Line 2

    Hard disk boot priority 'bootable add in cards' line(ie.your Promise
    controller), move the order till its at the top of the list with the page
    up,page down keys.It is not explained as such(the keys) in the manual.This
    may help.Good luck
