3. I have X8DTH-iF motherboard with 2 E5450 processors and 32GB ECC reg memory. 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? I tried to switch their places on PCI slots, it did not help.
4. I plug in 4GB of memory into my P8SAA board but Windows XP only shows 3GB of memory. Everything works fine but why does Windows shows only 3GB of memory?
5. How do I create a bootable USB stick?
6. How to flash iSCSI option ROM to AOC-SG-I4?
7. I noticed X8 DP series motherboard showing "ERST: Failed to get Error Log Address Range" message during the RHEL/CentOS 6.2,6.3 version while booting. What is this problem related to?
8. I have this server : At the system initialization it hang with a post code “B7”. I try to search AMI bios post code on your web site but I don’t find them. Do you have a description list of AMI bios post code ? Do you know what means the post code “B7” ?
9. What's the difference between the 82579LM and 82574L chipsets for the upcoming of the socket type LGA1155 motherboard?
10. Does the FAQ below point to a dead-end?

I have a customer who purchased 5 HDS-FI785D-M01 Fusion cards, he thinks he is having a driver issue (I am getting third party information on this). I saw that it was an issue at one time anyway since it was posted but the link is dead.

Can you send me a direct link to these FusionIO drivers please…?
Also where can I get the manual for this?
