Virtual connect skipping HP Smart Array

I dont quite know why or how,
But with a standard boot controller order of HP Smart array first, QLogic fibre second & third,the system doesn't even mention the Smart array while booting. In turn it obviously doesn't recognize any HDDs to boot from.

If I remove the profile associated with the bay from virtual connect manager, the server will default to one NIC and boots to it's HDD just fine.

What is going on?

Was running W2K8 SP2 on a BL460c.

Solution was: Replace the mainboard.
