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.

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?
