Hi,

I have configured a 1U server to boot FC4. The system is booting off of an internal Adaptec SCSI RAID 2120S controller. To get all the way up to the user prompt takes 20 minutes. Much, much too long.

Has anyone noticed any problems with FC4 booting off of a RAID controller? And if so, is there a known solution?

Thanks.

Jerry

Turns out that the problem was not the RAID controller. Got a 2nd server with only IDE drives. Was then able to get to the BIOS. Turned off several options. Server now starts fast. But was unable to confirm this on unit with RAID because RAID BIOS took over faster than I could get to motherboard BIOS.
