Boot fail with SATA card and drive attached but not used by Haiku

Description (last modified by )
I have an IO Crest SI-PEX40057 SATA III PCI-e card in my machine, and if I hook any hard drive to it, Haiku completely fails to boot and instead just reboots the machine as soon as it shows "Loading system" on the screen, before the graphical boot loader or anything else appears.
"IO Crest SATA III 4-Port PCI-e 2.0 x 2 Card with Marvell HyperDuo RAID Mode Support and Low Profile Brackets SI-PEX40057"
Merely unhooking the drive from the card "fixes" the problem and everything works fine.
I tried hooking up two different hard drives to the card, and both cause this problem, even though neither drive is the Haiku drive. These are just extra storage drives. (And everything works fine in Windows and Linux.)
Also, even with hrev46284 and earlier, if you try to enter the safe mode boot menu by holding down shift or space, this will cause a reboot before you load anything.
I went back to hrev45284 (100 revisions back) and still had the same problem, so I'm not sure how far back that issue goes (reboot when trying to enter safe mode menu with shift/space).
And again, just unhooking the drive from the card restores expected functionality and the system boots properly.
