The Promise BIOS only installs a handler if it detects at least one  
drive (as can be seen in the boot selection of the mainboard's BIOS).

If a drive is connected to the promise controller, the loader will  
reset/reboot when trying to boot from an ATA CD.

I haven't tried booting from floppy, as the Promise controller is  
only used for additional disks, so I just pulled them for the install.
