Re: Booting Tyan Thunder K7 with onboard SCSI (AIC-7899W)

Sorry I can't help much except to say:
#1 - I've had success booting off of AIC-7899W on-board controllers on a SuperMicro motherboard. No problems.
#2 - BUT... the AIC-7899W controller (ahc) has been a problem, in general, with other things. We're having intermittent issues with total crashes when copying between two SCSI drives on one controller. Though this may be really disappointing, I wouldn't depend on that onboard SCSI for a live server just yet, unless you've put it through a ton of tests.
