I use: 1) RevoDrive 3 as PCI-slot bootable drive ( with Windows 7 ultimate (latest drivers), 2) ATI FirePro 3D graphic card ( (latest drivers), 3) Adaptec 6805 RAID controller (latest firmware and drivers). For some reason, these 3 devices do not work together. Any two of them work perfectly, but when I connect all 3, RevoDrive disappears from BIOS. What could be the issue?

8.  I have a storage Chassis SC846BA-R1K28 and Mainboard X9DR7-LN4F did not start up anymore. Then I unplugged and replugged some SAS cables, and tried to locate which Disk slots are served by which cable. After pushing the power button it showed "supermicro"-screen with "System Initializing..." on the bottom and then did not do anything further. IPMI shows the message "System initializing... B7". Removing the Bios battery for some time did not solve the problem. I did not find an answer on the internet yet - could you please tell us what this means and how I can recover from this?
