Megaraid webbios + Asrock 970 extreme3
« on: January 01, 2014, 12:44:30 PM »
Hi vintagedon
firts of all HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I have LSI Megaraid SAS+SATA 9240-8i and Asrock 970 extreme3 but when the LSI bios appears, i can't ctrl+H to access the WebBios.
When the LSI bios appears, the usb keyboard led is off.
Do you have the same problem with your Asrock 970 extreme3 mobo and megaraid controller?

after various test, i changed usb port for keyboard and now webbios work.
Unfortunately when start esxi, hang on  "loading module megarais_sas"...
After some research I read that lsi 9240-8i it is not compatile with asrock 970 and esxi :(

I think I will buy a lsi 9260-8i
Do you know if the IBM ServeRAID-8i M5014/LSI 9260 is compatible with 970 extreme 3 ans esxi?

What is the difference between "IBM ServeRAID-8i M5014/LSI 9260" and "Megaraid lsi 9260-8i" ? Only the firmware?

Thank you
Claudio

I personally use an LSI 9260-8i with my ASRock 970 Extreme 3 that is colo'ed in a Chicago data center, and have no issues with it.


The M54014 is also compatible, and can be cross-flashed to LSI 9260-8i.  I have used both.


The difference is the firmware, and the IBM only has 256MB of cache, versus the LSI's 512MB.
As Always,
