Got a bit of an issue with a server and an STBLAB A-520 RAID card. If I install the RAID card in to the PCI-E x16 slot in my test bench, it will detect the hard disk and I can get half way through booting before the OS reboots.
If I install the A-520 in to the riser card for the Intel SR2400 server I have (in to the PCI-E x1 slot) I try booting and get some sort of dark blue screen with something to the effect of "Critical Hardware Failure 0x00000124 contact your hardware vendor" pops up after again, partially booting the OS.
Do I need to reinstall windows with the RAID card attached to the server? It won't be an issue since it is a fresh install. I can't pre-install the RAID drivers as suggested in other places because the software tells me I have no compatible hardware.
Do I need to change something else in the BIOS? Any help appreciated. This is the first time I've set up RAID and it seems to be a little less straight forward than I first assumed.
EDIT2: The server goes through POST which is fine, but can't seem to find a way to see if the RAID card is actually detected or not. Windows starts loading and then fails with a bluescreen error. The board is: "Intel Server Board: SE7520JR2". Would the chipset of the board matter in this case?
