I'm just getting started setting up F-Raid in my HTPC / Server. I'm trying to install an M1015 I bought pre-flashed to 9211-8i IT mode, and am having difficulty bypassing it so that I can load my OS from a mobo SATA connector. The 9211-8i wants to boot from a disk connected to it, and I can't seem to get around it by adjusting any settings in the LSI bios.

I had planned on using the 9211-8i just for the array, and run my OS off the motherboard SATA connector. Should I be making an effort to keep all my data and parity drives on the 9211-8i and use the mobo SATA for my OS? Or should I just go with the flow and hook up my OS drive to the 9211-8i and not be too concerned about where the rest of the drives are getting plugged in?

I also have another 9211-8i flashed to IT mode (I bought a pair of them for further expansion) that I could use but it would eliminate my last PCI-E slot which I'm currently using for USB 3.0.

The 9211-8i's are flashed to P19, the latest version. Is there a simple way that I could remove the boot rom from one of the cards? Or is it basically going through the whole "flash to 9211-8i IT" process again? Or even better, what's the trick to the settings in the LSI bios to get it to not want to load an OS from the card?
