I have tried to install an Adaptec 1420 SATA II Raid controller to an HP dx7400 (P/N GV902EA#ABB, S/N CZC8238MXD) and while it is recognized by the bios as a boot device it fails to boot from it as if no disk has been connected to it. If I connect the disk directly to the onboard controller it will boot with no problems. This is not a driver related issue as it fails at bios level. I have installed the latest BIOS from HP but the same problem continues. If I connect it to another HP PC, say DX6100MT (P/N PU834EC#AB7 , S/N CZC5021DJQ) it boots normaly.
Note that I have selected it as a boot device on the bios.
What can I do about it?
