When booting, do you even see the controller card's BIOS during post?

Yea, I really couldn't tell ya. It should show up during the boot process though.
I'm not completely familiar with how PCI RAID controllers work and I'm just tossing ideas out there, hoping one will stick

In the BIOS are there any options to boot from either a SCSI device or bootable add in card?

in the boot slection screen there an option for scsi and you can disable the on board ide ports.i have set both of them and nothing.and if you look on the right it says if you are useing a controler card to disable it and i did and nothing hapend. i keep one ide port enable because of my cd dirve could that be the prolblem.

I wouldn't think it should be a problem as there's only the CDROM attached to that channel.

Have a look through this: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/464269

Whoa hold the boat. . .

Your motherboard has on-board SATA ports?!

Why exactly aren't you using those? What brand/model motherboard do you have?
