Z390-e will not boot windows 11 after installing new graphics card

 Former PC tech here...

I just bought a new graphics card to install (Asus GeForce 4070 ti super), and after installing correctly, I got the error message on boot.

After looking into it, it seems my CMOS battery died as the bios date and time were reset.  I replaced the battery and tried again.  Still get the same issue.  However I went into the bios and changed the date, plus i enabled UEFI mode for boot, as well as Intel octane raid config (I have a raid 5 setup that does not include boot drive).

Still boots into bios and not windows.  I don't see an option to change boot priority (in case it's trying to boot a different har drive).  All my drives are SSD and I never had this issue before.  I'll go back and reinstall my old card just in case it's a power issue, but I can't believe that would be the issue.  I have the Corsair AX1200 PSU.  Can someone help me troubleshoot this?

I think ai figured it out.  I'm in Windows now.  I switched from Intel octane raid to AHCI and it booted.  I must have been using an os-based raid controller.
