ML150 G3 and SMART 2-SL can't boot

I have the aforementioned server with the latest firmware and a smart 2-sl controller with 4.50 firmware.
the controller rom initializes and detects the logical drive, but i can't select the controller in the system BIOS on the boot devices(and the system won't boot from the controller).

also, when the controller bios initializes, a system rom message appears about ctrl_array PDMPI bit PDM_BT enabled(i'm not in front of the server and can't remember the exact message).

What can i do to make this boot, changing the controller is not an option as this is an upgrade to a sensitive production system that's experiencing crashes and the software can't be reinstalled under any circumstance
