Are you using the very latest Squeeze installer ISO?
It's possible the driver in 2.6.32-5 used in the original Squeeze
installer doesn't work with the 9240. Support for the 9240 was added in
Something else to try:
If the disks that were attached to the mobo SATA ports are still intact
with Sqeueeze installed, boot the system with those attached to the mobo
SATA but with the 9240 and expander removed from the system.
Once booted, upgrade the kernel:
$ aptitude -t squeeze-backports install linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64
Shutdown, install the 9240 only, power up and see if it boots without
hanging. If it does, power down, plug in the expander, cables, drives,
etc, power up and see if Debian sees the RAID1 virtual disk, and the
JBOD drives, if any are present.
