hmm well there is no new BIOS listed on their website Foxconn - Support - Downloads
. When I have talked to tech support over the last few days they have tried to get me to install a BIOS 879F1P04 (a separate issue RAM related) but when I had vista working NON-RAID I tried to update via their update utility and it failed to update(the utility works fine b/c I used it to update the BIOS to P03 from P02 before) so I booted from cd and tried to install the BIOS and it loaded the bios update program but then when it tried to update.... Error: ROM file ID Incorrect. I know I did everything right, I am almost certain that the .rom file they gave me was not compatible with my motherboard which is why 2 different utilities rejected it.
If you could link me to the this new BIOS I will give it a shot though.
About destroying the RAID. I might be able to switch the sata cables and get it to error out and then get in the utility. Thats the only thing I can think of but I am pretty sure its a BIOS problem and not an array problem so I will try that after a BIOS update if it doesn't fix it outright. If I do not hook up the drives at all I can get into the utility but I cant do anything obviously.
