As I suspected, the HDD backplane on this system seems to be the culprit — unplug it and the card initializes without a problem. Good to have it stored in a file, so I can restore it if it gets wiped!
Did you get this resolved? To me its not functional. First — see if megarec can see the device.

Using latest version of the Supermicro firmware found here: I have tried your instructions step by step, everything went good until flashing sas2flash -o -f Its here purely as a curiosity, so if you feel compelled to copy these commands and lai up bricking something, or suffer any negative outcome, its your problem.
Lastly — if you need to back-track and want to reflash without the bios, use this command to wipe it whilst preserving the SAS address — before reflashing just the firmware and leaving out the BIOS. What did I miss? No, I never resolved it unfortunately. I followed your instructions which are pretty much spot on — I lei the sbempty.

No PI Drive’s write cache: The motherboard was delivered with v Then when looking for firmware, I found several pages across the interwebs saying that there is no IT mode firmware for the LSI chipset on my motherboard, and that basically if I wanted to use it, the best I could hope for was JBOD mode through the hardware controller.
Note that because the terminal emulation doesn’t allow scrolling back and the amount of information well exceeds what fits on a page, the ‘-page24’ providing basic paging support. I have the same motherboard and backplane. There are multiple versions of sas2flash and sas2flsh.
Was definitely not a straightforward process, but not really any more difficult than re-flashing an M to IT mode. I have tried lots of sas2flash versions, non of them worked.
Hi I checked your guide out. This page has information which is not substantiated, and certainly not supported by any vendors mentioned on this page. Any damage sustained to yourself, your lis, or your data is entirely your own responsibility, and if you break things, whilst I am sympathetic and feel your pain, I am not responsible as in no way am I suggesting this is a good idea.

Hard Disk Device Drive Temperature: Your email address will not be published. I take it you had no issues with a buzzer being on? Yes, this is possible. If it is a file system drive, please 208 it. Good to know, as its also a SAS card, and a useful data point to have on cards which can be flashed.
