Well maybe some can help me with this " I have a X79A 45G Plus motherboard with an LSI SAS/SATA controller card and 3 Seagate Cheetah 15K.7 hard drives I'm trying to load windows 8.1 on the first HDD but I keep getting the message that the OS can not be loaded to the drive I chose. sometimes it says windows could not find a partition nor could windows make a partition. I click on more information and sometimes I get this error 0x8007045d or 0x80300002 or 0xda48ab20. I formatted the HDD's and verified the format but I cannot seem to get into the HDD to partition it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Were you able to use the drives previously or are these brand new drives?  What happens if you try to install Windows without the controller card?

My drives are brand new (refurbished) with out the controller card the motherboard doesn't recognize them at all. I tried to find drivers for the hard drives but I don't seem to be able to find them either. I am truly lost here.

Hard drives don't usually need drivers.  Do you have another motherboard you can attempt to connect these drives to?  Have you done anything in the BIOS or is it using the default values?

No I haven't  done anything in the Bios The set up for the adaptor card says the adaptor is enabled but when the cmd (shell) pops up it list the HDD's as blk0: blk0 blocked alias blk0 (null) 

I respond with alias blk0 enable press enter it jumps to the next line

Shell _  and nothing happens it seems to recognize the command but does nothing about  

I'm going to mess with it some more tonight

Its something I'm doing or not doing for sure but with a little We'll get her.

my motherboard documentation says PCI e slot 6 will support PCI e 3.0 x8 speeds but it is a 3.0 x16 slot would that have something to do with it???
