To be honest, i have seen that many raid controller card dont work on Intel desktop boards.
Anyway, Intel has not validated any raid controller card on the Intel Desktop Boards.
I remembered to have used a raid controller card on DG43NB and it worked fine, when i have used on another intel board, it did not work.
So if your SCSI card does not work on the board or the scsi drives are not detected, try it on another non-intel board if possible to see if it works or not. Then you can be sure that it is due to incompatibility between the intel board and your scsi card.
However, you can need to make sure that this settings is enabled in the bios:
- enabled expansion card text in the bios (Security >> Expansion Card Text>> Enabled)
If you manage to enter the RAID Bios of the Card, check if you can see the hard drives detected overthere.
Note: This is not the case on Intel (R) Server Boards, where we have a list of validated adapters and hard drives to refer to.
All the best,
