[Beowulf] PERC 5/E problems

I have a PERC 5/E card installed on my frontend (Dell PE 2970) that will be
used to connect a MD1000 from Dell.
I have a problem: PERC 5/E is not showing in BIOS.  When the server is 
starting up, I cannot
press Ctrl-R to launch the PowerEdge Expandable RAID Controller BIOS
(the card does not display it's bios boot message saying "hit ctrl-r for 
perc 5...").

I tried a different PCI slot and riser but with no luck.

Is out there anybody that might give a hand fixing this?
