I have a fairly recent intel motherboard D845PESV and it simply does not recognize an older Promise ultra 66 raid board I wish to use. I switched PCI slots, took out a flahpoint scsi board I use for my scsi disk,  nothing seems to help - Any ideas?

You have got the latest BIOS? SV84510A.86A.0017.P09:

here's some problems reported

There's a lot of jiggery pokery regards the PCI slots and what does what as far as I can glean from this document - thouh to be honest it's mostly over my head.

But in relation to this info - I'd systemattically try it in every PCI slot

SCSI cards are recognized at the driver level, not BIOS level - all bootable SCSI cards have their own BIOS.  What you may need is the correct ASPI driver for that card: http://aspi.radified.com/

Callandor, read the question -
I don't have a problem with the SCSI card, I have a problem with the RAID card.

I tried another PCI slot - while the bios did not indicate anything ( I have come to the conclusion that actually there is NO SECTION or SETTING in this particular INTEL BIOS where the board might show up - although I had a previous INTEL board that showed it) windows 2k did recognize it. I have not yet connected a hard drive to it, so I still have to check if W2k sees the drive as well. I'll submit again if I have further problems
