SCSI boot problem?

By simplebob ·
Hey all, I am working on a Dell PowerEdge 2300 and I'm having problems getting it to boot up the OS. Originally it had Suse 9 on it and it was used as a backup server. It was housed in a church that often looses power when the smallest of storms would roll through. The UPS that is was running off of bit the dust and every time the power went out it would shut down. I believe that this is what caused the problem.

But any how, here is the problem. I installed Suse 10 on it. It boot up the CD just fine and finds both of the SCSI hard drives. After the first disk gets installed Suse restarts the computer to finish the rest of the installation. But the thing is when it tries to restart it says that there is no bootable devices found press F1 to retry or F2 to go into setup. I checked out the SCSI setup and from what I know every thing looks fine.

Also, when the machine first starts up it says that the system backplane firmware needs upgraded. But it has always said that even when the machine was in good running condition.

Thanks in advance,
