Has anybody ever been succesful in running multiple RAID cards, and booting to one of them? Been playing around with this, and having no success. Thus far I've gotten failed PCI card POST, mac address errors at boot, BSOD in Windows at startup, or a combination of the above.
It seems that the bood controller has to be POSTed first, so slot placement is critical, but both the MB and Windows seem to want to confuse the cards anyway.
As to windows, the trick may be to boot to the onboard IDE to install the 2 cards, then image the system volume to the boot card. but so far I can't get past the MB restrictions.
