Blade 18 does not boot after BIOS update 2.04 RAID (VMD) removed?

Hello,

today, I updated my BIOS to 2.04.
After the update, the Blade 18 did not boot anmore (was installed with RAID 1).

After booting the BIOS setup appeared. 

I then realized, that VMD was deactivated. After having reactivated VMD in the BIOS, the RAID was corrupted, as the second drive was no longer part of the RAID.

I reinitialized the RAID (deleted and created again), but the RAID driver (Intel RST) could not be loaded with WinPE nor by new Windows 11 installation.

What has happeneded? The BIOS 2.04 seems to be buggy?

Can I rollback to 2.02 or will there be a fixed BIOS version, soon?

Thanks & best regards

Christian
