MSI A55M-P33 issue when set SATA set to RAID

I picked up a combo deal at Frys with an AMD A4-3300 and MSI A55M-P33, along with 8 gigs of corsair ram, a Raidmax case with an included 380w power supply, and I put in a Corsair 120GB hd that I had extra.

My intent is to setup a network media server that I might also run a Minecraft server on.

I burned an Ubuntu 13.04 server DVD and installed it, no problems.

The problem I have is that when I set the SATA ports to RAID (or ahci for that matter) the computer boots to the efi shell and if I exit out of that it goes to the bios. It will only boot to Ubuntu when I set the SATA port to IDE.

The MB currently has v1.7 of the bios that it came with, but there is a v2.0 that I can flash to it.

Any ideas of why it does this and if updating to the v2 bios will help?

That looks promising; I'll give it a try, thanks!

The info in that thread got it booting up with ahci. There's probably another setting I'll need to add in once I put the raid drives in, thanks a bunch.
