Installing to a PCIE sata card

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have an ASUS P5Q deluxe from an old gaming computer that I'm converting to a server. Unfortunately, while their silly onboard fake RAID thing(drive xpert) worked fine in Windows, the drives are not being detected at all when I attempt to install openSUSE to them. I've tried disabling it and setting it to "normal" but still no luck. The other SATA ports are detected without issue, but they're for my storage drives. Eventually I decided the better option might be a pcie SATA card, but I'm not positive it will solve my problem: Will I be able to install to drives attached through a PCIE card? (HowTos)
