Dell Optiplex 9020

I have a Dell Optiplex 9020 that I just upgraded the Bios to A10. The HDD is on an SATA PCI card and now when it boots it is telling me there isn't a hard drive. When I press F1 to continue,  I'm able to boot fine but still get the alert on each boot. I have went into the Bios to check the boot sequence but don't see "removable boot device" or anything pertaining to that. How to disable the alert or change to boot off the PCI card?

The disk options are showing the internal sata, USB, cd and diskette. Usually I would see external or remote drive to choose or even yet to remove the alert from popping up.

Looking into it remotely, looks like a raid controller.  Weird, don't know why it would have one but would assume it is mirrored for the customer.

Downgraded the bios back to original and it booted fine. The bios had an update with the onboard SATA controller that trumped the card.
