ok, I can get it working

we need to take 8xx_64.rom from lsi and put it in /usr/share/kvm/

then start the kvm with -option-rom 8xx_64.rom.

also, network devices pxe boot conflict, so I must use "romfile=" on network device.

And it's booting fine.

I don't know which license 8xx_64.rom is ? Can we integrated it in proxmox ?

Objet: [pve-devel] qemu 1.0 : scsi boot not working anymore 

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
