Has anybody heard anything further concerning this issue? Is there any
workaround or is this a hardware related issue that an updated driver is
needed to resolve (that is possibly currently in development)?

>>>From discussion posted 5/3/07:

I recently installed a Pre-migration NetWare 6.5 SP6 server onto an IBM
x3500 server and the boot process is hanging for a few minutes when it
tries to load the AACRAID.HAM driver and then subsequently hangs again when

it gets to "Scanning for Devices and Partitions"

me too - I just patched 15 Dell 1850s and they took between 30 and 45 mins
each to come back up
