Crikey, a man needs his sleep, helping is tiring work

You need a non UEFI BIOS motherboard to use some DOS commands, sas2flsh included
Use either the Windows or UEFI boot versions of the command, links in first post should have both versions

so before i stuff things up, 

 

see the psi_win drop does not include the 2118it.bin file, neither does it include empty... I noticed.

after fitting the card to a machine that has a windows OS and booting up, would I simply go to the command prompt and execute the sas2flash.exe -o -f 2118it.bin ?

just curious...

how would this software know where to find the card. don't want it to try and flash something else.

Run Windows Shell (command) in Administrator mode
If you have just the one LSI card in the machine the flasher app will pick it
It won't flash you BIOS or Video ROM 

You'll need to pick and match files as they suit
I had all the folders on a USB stick so they were handy
Also had an old Non UEFI motherboard to do it on, I'm a DOS man from way back
But all thats gone after fire, including all but one of my LSI (HP branded) LSI cards

Not to worry, also come from the DOS age, can also through in some Netware 2.12 if you remember... 🙂

... so I'm logged in as a admin, know command shell well. Happy to hear about the tool will only do the card.

command wise I assume it's the exact same commands as the DOS option, as in the sas2flash 2118it.bin and then the rewrite of the serial number.

I'm mostly, make that only on MAC now,  I'm going to use the wife's computer for this. tired of taking the NAS apart to try, then problem, put back together until next try.

Well I'll be dammed, just wanted to make sure I got ALL the files on the windows USB... and discovered 2118it.bin is not there, so quickly popped to my lsi_dos drop, well guess it was not there either, so re-downloaded the file, and it's not in there...

it is in the sas2008 drop.

Give it ago in UEFI boot mode, files should also be in the downloads
Its less likely to hide cards as nothing other than UEFI BIOS has booted
I normally don't use Windows unless no other options

happy to try

excuse me... but the UEFI steps are not clear, well at least for me... (or at least those I've found online)

I got the BIOS bootable USB.

what do I copy where, what do I execute when.

The docs :

You can use UEFI to flash the BIOS too.

Have a look here http://kb.lsi.com/KnowledgebaseArticle15807.aspx

is not there anymore either.

Trying to follow : http://brycv.com/blog/2012/flashing-it-firmware-to-lsi-sas9211-8i/

not booting.

on another site they said create a eft/boot folders and drop files into the boot folder, also not working.
