I was experiencing a bug where no matter what I tried I was unable to get 2 800P SSDs to remap.
I figured that a BIOS update might cure this and now the system is frozen at step:
Flashing image for FV data firmware
You can mark this closed.
I was able to reboot into BIOS and attempt the flash a 2nd time, this one was successful.
That said, my other problem remain, I will be creating a thread for that specific problem in a few minutes.
