Just wanted to pass along a note for all the Fusion-io people.

TL;DR
Windows - use HP branded
Linux - use Fusion-io

@Patrick's odyssey with the Proxmox and Ubuntu inspired me. I used a HP branded cards and followed the Windows guide by @markpower28 here Fusion-io ioDrive installation on Windows. For that I had to use the HP branded driver.

Then I went to Ubuntu 14.04 and did that install. Thanks for the tip on not using 14.04.2. HP didn't have a Ubuntu driver since 12.04 so I didn't even waste time.

I then swapped to the Fusion-io driver and it worked.

Thanks to @Patrick and @markpower28 for helping me use the cards.
