Thanks for replying, I think it is safe to say that the issue resides with Linux and not Windows. Unless maybe you have an updated BIOS that has since resovled the issue.
I still have the ASROCK mobo and plan to use it when I finally decide to upgrade my gaming rig. I am looking at using a 2920x for that build possibly.

Just moved my Unraid to my newly built ASRock X399 + Threadripper 1950x server and of course I had a LSI MegaRaid 9260 which brought me to this thread as I was hanging on boot as well. So I updated the bios to the most recent, 3.5 on the ASRock board and now everything is going well. In fact, I accidentally stumbled across a section in the ASRock bios to let me view and configure the LSI 9260 so I didn't have to use the raid card's interface. I'll update in a few days as it seems like some folks ran OK for a short while. I'm running Proxmox on it and passing through the LSI 9260 to an Unraid VM. So far so good.
