Problem with Compaq Proliant 800 server boot

Problem with Compaq Proliant 800 server boot

I have a Proliant 800 server and it has a 10 gig SCSI HDD in it and that is what the operating system is installed on.  I installed a Maxtor Ultra ATA/100 controller and connected a 300GB HDD to it.  Now I cannot get it to boot from the SCSI like it was doing before.  It tries to boot from the 300GB and of course says nonsys disk.  I dont know how to change this since F1-F12 does nothing and I have gone crazy pressing buttons with no luck.  Could someone please help me.

RE: Problem with Compaq Proliant 800 server boot

Server Setup has the second scsi set as the primary. Use the server Assistant disk to reload the system.

Warning you will loose all data.
