It has been a really bad day.
I first tried to get the gforce 550ti to work and I got video lockout on all three gfx cards so I said what the heck and I'll reinstall but I decided to try out the RAID on the motherboard.
So what was a day long (24hour) reinstall with 2tb of files to reload turned into a very expensive paper weight.
Has anyone seen the RAID fail on BioStar TA990FXE or similar? I assume I selected the wrong things and it thinks the drives are broken I guess. It didn't know the drives were not connected nor will it allow me to enter the BIOS to change things.
I found one mention of the problem on Tom's hardware but no solution.
Biostar will get a call for sure but I thought to ask.

The answer to a jacked up setting is to clear CMOS. The Motherboard offers a jumper clear and it works great!
Learned something new.

Oh my bad...
I have 4 drives and at the same time I was trying to get the video card to work one of the drives failed!
Wow talk about a red herring. I was seeing the system say there were three drives but I knew there were 4 and Linux wouldn't boot and so on.
What a trip.
So if you have a BioStar mother board it looks like it's good quality but as the warning said ,, We may have a hardware problem. I think it is a joke message for a bad setting if you ask me.
