I am trying to install a LSI SAS3041E-R 4x PCI-E HBA (raid controller) in to a Intel dg965wh motherboard which only has 1 - 16x slot and 2 1 1x slots. After post, where the hba bios should load, I just get a blinking cursor that does not respond to keyboard commands (but does allow to me to toggle numlock and reboot.)

The motherboard is running the most recent bios from Intel with a Quad Core Processor.

Any help would be greatly appreciated..
