I'm doing some test on qemu 1.0 , 

scsi disks does not seem to boot anymore.

scsi disk are working good. (i can mount them if i boot from ide or virtio).

Must be related to seabios

Not sure it's related but I found this message:

If I understand we need to pass lsi rom.

-> unzip -> boot with "-option-rom 8xx_64.rom"

I'll do more test today
