That was an interesting suggestion but no luck. It did beep but no SCSI
control menu on reboot.
It should just work. I have never had this happen before.

1. Go into the BIOS.
2. Hit the Numlock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock keys so the lights on
the keyboard are lit.
3. Press CTRL-E and you should hear a beep.
4. Save and exit the BIOS and reboot.
Maybe the machine will "see" the SCSI controller now.

Subject: PE 2650 and Add in RAID Controller not being
I have a 2650 whose PERC3 has finally quit. In trying to get some extra
life out of the box, I put in a simple SCSI RAID controller to manage
the disks. The card is not being detected at boot time as a SCSI
controller and I have no opportunity to ctr-c and configure the devices.
I can boot to CD and detect the card and the drives attached. I cannot
see the device in the BIOS to set boot order.
Card - LSI Logic LSI20320-R MPT Fusion based controller. (Kernel
supported) 64bit, PCI-X, 133MHZ.
In PCI-X slot 1 to be scanned first per docs.
System BIOS ver A21.
This is an older box with the 400Mhz FSB. I have put it in every slot.
I have had the card work in another Machine (PCI).
Any ideas on things to try?
Note: The preferred method it to use HW RAID over SW RAID on the Adaptec
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
