Is it possible to use Intel Tri-Mode RAID as a bootable device with desktop motherboard?

I have an Intel RAID RSP3TD160F adapter and UEFI-capable desktop motherboard based on Z390 chipset. Apparently the UEFI BIOS does not provide a setup menu entry for Human Interface Infrastructure. Also it displays "No MegaRAID Adapter Installed" message during POST. Is it possible to use StorCli or any other tools to setup a bootable RAID array for this hardware configuration? Is there a way to run MegaRAID Human Interface Infrastructure Configuration Utility from EFI shell?

The problem has been resolved in three steps:

  1. Latest BIOS version flashed on the motherboard (MSI MEG Z390 Godlike)
  2. RAID card profile setting changed from "PD64" to "PCIe4"
  3. Generic SFF-8643->SFF-8639 cable changed to Broadcom 05-50064-00 due to different pinout on LSI Tri-Mode cards. More info is here: https://www.icydock.com/PDF/MB699VP-B_Tri-mode_compatability_announcement.pdf

You need to discuss this with the motherboard manufacturer.
