Has anyone successfully gotten an Intel CA810E (micro-ATX) motherboard to boot from a ROM on a PCI card? I took a PCI ethernet card with an Etherboot ROM on it which works fine on an Intel SE440BX2 motherboard, and put it in the CA810E motherboard. It failed to find the ROM. Now the CA810E is a pretty new motherboard, so it is quite conceivable that there is a bug in the latest BIOS (I upgraded it to the latest (Nov 8) version). I tried making OPTION ROM the first boot device, but no luck. Note that the machine Etherboots just fine from a floppy, so I'm pretty sure this new Intel BIOS wants or needs something that it is not finding. Since it works on an older motherboard, I am wondering if the bus speed is too great or something. My next move is to get a 3Com 3c905C-TXM card with their Flash Option ROM on it, and see if that is recognized. At least I'll know it is possible. Anybody know what might be going on?
