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?

10. I just bought one of your system 6047R-E1R24L. The motherboard (X9DRD-7LN4F-JBOD) has an LSI 2308 SAS controller on it. It claims to have 8 channels. The SAS backplane allows 24 disk to be connected, but there is only one connector on it, which  is connected directly to port SAS0-3 of the motherboard with a CNL-0421L cable.
1) Will I be able to use all 24 slots available with current setup or only 8 slots?
2) If I need to add an additional HBA to connect additional drives, how can I connect it to the back plane?
3) Would it be possible to replace the backplane with one that has a separate SAS/SATA connector for each drive? If so, which part number should I look for?
