    scsi card pausing server on boot

    Hi

    I have an Adaptec 39320A scsi card in a Dell SC1420 server.

    The only thing connected to the scsi card is an Ultrium tape drive.

    The problem I have is that during the server bootup the server pauses at the Adaptec information part and says press F1 to skip or F2 to resume.

    Why does it pause? How can I stop it pausing at this screen? I've been told it can be done from the Adaptec's settings but I don't know which setting it is

    It's <CTRL><ALT><A> if I recall to get into the scsi bios on bootup. It's likely that it's been set to diagnostics mode (under the advanced settings) or it's setup with a RAID array that isn't there any more.

    If you're still stuck, here's the manual.

    Raid is disabled on the card.

    Thanks for the link but I'm still unsure which option causes the pause

    Just try messing with some of them then. You can't damage anything, just cause the machine to fail to boot.
