IBM Blade - Qlogic Fibrechannel SAN Boot windows 2008

With this configuration it is crucial to set only one path to San Storage LUN which is the Path it will always boot.
After installation install MPIO (MultiPath IO drivers) from IBM Storage Manager Software.
This will enable path changes when the OS is running. But remember it will always boot from the selected path in the firmware. When the Path is changed while the os is running it will not boot without modifing the firmware settings of the QLogic HBA.
