Storage Controller

I have a Ultra/66 PCI to IDE adapter developed by Promise technologies. I am trying to install it on my system and would like to have a boot-able HD connected to it. I think it might be a little more difficult than just installing a driver to my OS since it would have to boot an OS separate from the one the HD. Would this require some mod to my bios to be able to boot from a pci slot?

As per the specs: “Features LBA and Extended Interrupt13h drive installation in controller onboard BIOS”. It will work if your system can detect it. Most 10-12 years old systems should be able to boot from it (10-12 years old or more).
