Well, did you check at the LSI site for the controller/card that *is* 
detected (MegaRAID 3028)?
Maybe it's not a 1068E. There is no mention of it anywhere just on that 
product page. Maybe that info is wrong. Also, you should be aware that the 
1068E sits usually on a PCI-Express card. If that is not present or if you 
use the SATA ports on the MB that is *not* the 1068E!
