s5000pal srcsasrb gpt and efi

I have a s5000pal motherboard, with a srcsasrb raid controller, with 5x 2Tb disks attached in raid 6


Currently, I have a 32Mb usb stick plugged in as my boot drive, to load grub and my kernel, which then mount my linux root partition on the GPT partitioned 6 Tb array


I want to get rid of the dependance on the USB drive


On the array, I have a 256Mb FAT partition which hold my various grub/efi utilities


In the EFI shell, when I run map, I do not see the Raid array at all, though


If I run 'drivers', I don't  see any driver associated with the raid card.


If I connect a USB stick formatted as FAT, with grub utilities on it, I can run grub in the efi shell, but grub can't see the raid partitions either.




How can I see the raid array in the EFI shell - even better, how do I access the FAT partition on the RAID array in the EFI shell?


Hope somebody can help...
