I have a DELL and get 2 short beeps on boot and then the following message:

INTEL RAID for Serial ATA - RAID BIOS v3.5.6.6253
Press F1 to continue     Press F2 to enter setup

Hit F1 and the system boots fine.  I flashed the BIOS to the latest update I could find, which is in the error message, and no change.  I thought 2 beeps meant a memory issue but the RAM is seated tight and the memory is seen in Windows.  Any ideas?
