Has anyone else observed this? Does anyone have experience with the
Tyan S2882-D motherboard?

I'm having a problem booting my Tyan S2882-D motherboard from
a SCSI disk when a SATA disk is has been added.

Tyan suggested changing the PCI bus scanning order from Descent to
Ascent. I tried this but observed that the PCI bus address for the
on-board SATA controller and my video card are moving when I change
the scan order. No matter what I try the on-board SATA controller
always is detected before the on-board SCSI controller.

Scanpci -v output with BIOS PCI scan set to ascent:

Maxblast (for maxtor hardrives) can detect a new sata drive when windows can't. You can use the maxblast cd as the boot device and partition and format either drive. I use it to make an exact copy for a backup hardrive, but this has to be done while running windows. Other hardrive manufacturers have similar software. I have never tried connecting a new hardrive while the computer is already running, so I don't know if you can do this safely or if windows will detect it properly.

I would unplug the sata drive and boot up to the scsi. If the scsi has windows, then I would install maxblast or other hardrive software to set up the new sata drive. Then try installing the sata drive while windows is running. If the sata drive has files you want to save, then you will have to back them up first. You may have to search for "other devices" to get the sata to show up in your maxblast setup. Once maxblast finds it, then you can select it as the new boot device or as a second drive. Maxblast only allows you to make changes to the new drive, and not the one you're running in windows. It will erase and partition the sata drive, and if you like, make an exact copy of the scsi files so the sata becomes the new boot device. If you want to run both drives together, this may be easier than trying to get the motherboard to boot off the scsi drive.
