7.  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.
8.  I have a storage Chassis SC846BA-R1K28 and Mainboard X9DR7-LN4F did not start up anymore. Then I unplugged and replugged some SAS cables, and tried to locate which Disk slots are served by which cable. After pushing the power button it showed "supermicro"-screen with "System Initializing..." on the bottom and then did not do anything further. IPMI shows the message "System initializing... B7". Removing the Bios battery for some time did not solve the problem. I did not find an answer on the internet yet - could you please tell us what this means and how I can recover from this?
9.  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” ?
10.  How to flash iSCSI option ROM to AOC-SG-I4?
