That's a sign that the scsi adapter was not detected.  Use the boot
manager to start "nshell" (EFI command line shell).  Then you should
be able to look at the detected PCI devices.  I'm not sure off the top
of my head what the command is called, but if you invoke "help", you
should find it quickly.  If that's the problem, you may want to verify
that the scsi adapter is firmly seated in its pci slot.
