    Dell 1600sc win 2003, sp2

    We were recently given this computer. The OS was loaded.

    Using 2 disks in a raid 1 configuration.

    Upon boot the following is displayed :

    primary hard disk drive 0 not found

    poweredge expandable raid controller bios 3.27 apr 29, 2002
    press ctrl m to run config utility
    ctrl h for webbios

    HA -0 bus 0 dev 4 perc 4/sc standard fw 1.72 dram=32mb
    1 logical drive found on the host adapter
    1 logical drives handled by bios

    strike the f1 key to continue, f2 to run the setup utility.

    ===========================

    Pressing f1 boots the os. And all is well.

    But every boot requires pressing F1.

    I have set bios to boot from the PCI scsi card.

    And Perc is set to boot from the drive.

    Clues? Guidance? ,.....

    Wrong forum.
    Cannot always keep track of all the problems I am attempting to fix.
    A little weary today.

    Sorry.
