When RAID is enabled in the BIOS, you see this RAID Option ROM command prompt during startup:

If the BIOS setting for Expansion Card Text is disabled and the <CTRL I> command prompt does not appear, try the following steps to resolve the issue.

  1. Press F2 during startup to enter the BIOS Setup.
  2. Go to the Boot menu.
  3. Set Expansion Card Text1 to Enabled.
  4. Press F10 to save and exit.

This option is called Addon ROM Display Mode on discontinued desktop boards.
