Can't boot into motherboard BIOS with LSI MegaRAID 9265-8i

Can't boot into motherboard BIOS with LSI MegaRAID 9265-8i

I am desperately in need of some help here. I have an LSi 9265-8i raid controller card that I have four SSD's in RAID 0 for boot and 2 HDD's in RAID 5 for storage hooked up to.

Everything works great, EXCEPT I cannot boot into the motherboard BIOS with the card installed (I am using an Asus Rampage III Extreme Black Edition). It uses a pcie slot, which I have it plugged into slot 4 (8x). What happens is this: The splash screen comes up and I'll hit DEL to enter the bios, the RAID controller bios then pops up and runs, once it's done a screen pops up that just says "wait..." and it just sits there. The strange thing is I have used the diagnostic switch on the motherboard and turned off the pcie slot w/ the controller card, but it still immediately takes me to a "wait..." screen when I hit DEL to enter the BIOS. The only way I can successfully get into the BIOS is if I completely disconnect the controller card from the slot.

This is incredibly frustrating. Even more so is that I've spoken with another person with the same controller card and motherboard and he has absolutely no problems. I don't know what or if I need to RMA anything because the controller card functions fine and so does the motherboard (seemingly) except for that one function.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated,
