While I haven't encountered that exact issue, I've dealt with their cards. 
Lots of them.

Is it a PCI, PCI-X, PCI 64, etc? Which card? Is it in the right type of 

Do you have another computer you can test the card in? To make sure it's 
not some sort of 3ware+bios versus motherboard bios issue?

I assume the writing of the flash worked all the way?

What if you disconnect all of the drives? Will it boot then?
If so, downgrade firmware?

Can you set the PC motherboard to boot from another drive first, and not 
the SCSI/add in? If so, will that get you the ability to downgrade
