I have a Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P with the latest software, currently have 9
hard drives attached 
1 x 32 ssd
8 x 1T hd

I installed a adaptec 51645 hardware raid controller 

I have attached 5 x 2T drives and carved up

lun 0 - 32G 
lun 1 - 8T (approx)

when I allow the card to enable its bios and thus boot from lun 0, I get a 

welcome to grub<cr>
free magic is broken at 0xf000e816: 0xffffffff
Aborted. Press any key to exit.

any key reboot machine.

when i disable the bios I am able to boot the machine with not problem and
linux sees the 8T drive and the 32G lun as well - it is part of a raid set
with 32G ssd.

I am using debian testing/unstable (sid) - grub 1.98-1

I have pictures - but I have copied over the essetianal info.  This happens
every times I boot from the ssd and the hardware control has its bios enabled.
When I boot from lun 0 from the adaptec is doesn't even make it the grub text
- and I have grun-installed to that hard drive.

This is a slight problem I had intended on taking out the SSD and using just
the adaptec
