Recommended Posts

Latest Firmware files for the LSI SAS2208 based controllers.

LSI SAS2208 Firmware packages

21.0.1-0132 from Dell

23.7.0-0035 from LSI

23.7.0-0037 from IBM

23.7.0-0038 from Intel

Megarec Doesn't work but MegaCLi does.

Use below to flash card

Megacli -adpfwflash -f 0xxx_yyy.rom -a0

Should you have issues with card, ie it won't boot or gets stuck.

Disable in the BIOS the ability to load the LSI OROM

Boot to bootable disk.

Now flash with MegaCLi:

Megacli -adpm0flash -f 0xxx_yyy.rom

megacli -adpfacdefset -a0

This will reset your card with firmware (best to use your OEM version)

Should be able to revive this again
Just found a bargain LSI 9285CV-8e, a mere US$55 incl shipping and includes Super Capacitor and both brackets
This is PCIe Gen2 not like the more expensive 9286 with PCIe Gen3 but running Spindle drives so doubtfull I'll get bottlenecked

Already working on gathering up latest files

Still have and use the IBM ServeRAID M5016, but Cachecade has tempted me to the 9285
I've got a Super Capacitor coming for this and will probably sell it
Done me well running 8x2TB for all these years
