That's it. Now it's working as expected.

Only that at first I haven't found how to disable the
BIOS. On my Adaptec 29160 with BIOS 3.10.0 there is no
option "Host Adapter BIOS: enable/disable ..." as shown
in the manual which came with the card. Searching -> "Find Answers"
  Question: "How do I disable BIOS on the Adaptec SCSI Controller"

I found the answer. Disabling the BIOS can either be done
with the option "Host Adapter BIOS" or with
"SCSI Controller Int 13 Support".

Many thanks,
