[mythtv-users] OT: Backplane Modules

A little over a year ago, I bought an IcyDock 5 bay back plane module [ 
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817994028 ] to house 
my hopefully-impending software raid array.  In setting up the box I 
started getting the error "Hardware Initiate failed, please check 
device!!! The BIOS does not be installed, press <g> to continue" [verbatim 
quote] upon boot.  Sometimes before that message, the text describing a 
random drive would become garbled, or the a HD would simply not show up in 
the list.  Through the process of elimination, I discovered that removing 
the backplane also removed the errors. 

I am trying to figure if I just have a freak bad module, or if another 
brand would be preferable.  Thoughts?
