Windows 7: Can't boot without DVD with SCSI Raid Card and IDE

17 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32

I'll attempt to do the copy - know that works because I attached a spare Ide that had those files last night and it booted without the DVD. The IBM's BIOS is pretty restrictive and you have limited control. Know it can select a different startup drive as it changes message from missing op system to missing BOOTMGR when I move the IDE first and the SCSI second. Want the SCSI as the BOOT because the speed is substantially faster with the raid. Also will try throwing in a SATA2 card and sata drive and see that will work in conjunction with the SCSI card.

The only other thing is that the system currently is using the standard drivers for the SCSI card - didn't use the LSI Logics (load first) which I'll try. They don't have a Windows 7 version but have a VISTA driver - no more developement apparently.
