Incompatible Technology

It appears that the SIIG eSata controller card is incompatible with the Promise Technology MBFastTrak133 controller built into my motherboard. When I disconnect the mirrored drives from the built-in controller, it boots past the SIIG controller successfully.

I've flashed the motherboard BIOS to the latest version, but there's no way to update the BIOS for the Promise controller.
