    I just added two sata disks to my silicon PCI based raid controller
    and find that the box will no longer boot.....if I disable the sata
    disks by disconnecting the sata cables it boots fine again off the ide
    channel (CF card)....cant cdrom boot either....tried bios settings, no
    joy (try other boot device - no, also yes just in case) .....I must be
    missing something....

    ?

    :/

    regards
