What's your scsi chip? Does it support boot?
What's your mobo bios? Does it allow scsi boot?
Unless you use stuff much older than 440BX mobo, you can boot on scsi if
your scsi card is bootable. Some BX mobos even have scsi bios built-in.
Either choose boot on scsi or disable ide devices in bios depending on
your mobos. Your problem is not related to OBSD.
