its a hba as it comes with 9207 4i4e firmware

you can flash it to 9217 4i4e for 0 1 1e 10 raid

 

it has an 800mhz powerpc duel core cpu onboard so ofc its hardware raid

So I have both the LSI 9207 and the P410 in the post, will decide which to use once I get them.

Its officially supported

 

Make a dos boot disk and extract this to it

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8-hfA9ycQNob1VPTkZ3cHVvQXc/view?usp=sharing

 

boot from it

cd p20

9217.bat to flash 9217 firmware

9207.bat to flash 9207 firmware

 

the rar has the best version for the microserver gen8

20.00.07.00 FIrmware

7.39.00.00 MPTSAS2 (7.39.02.00 Causes an NMI on the Gen8)

7.27.01.01 UEFI

 

Make sure you dont flash (not included in the rar i posted btw)

7.39.02.00 MPTSAS2 on 9207 if you enter the sas bios the gen8 will nmi

7.39.02.00 MPTSAS2 on 9217 the gen8 will nmi on powerup without entering the sas bios and will have to be flashed from another pc

 

also read this if you want spindown enabled in windows

the Windows 10 inbox driver 2.0.79.80 is great dont bother with drivers from lsi they are older

 

latest MegaRAID Storage Manager 16.11.00.03 (if you want it)

Awesome thank you! Will flash it right away when I receive it! :)

Will be using it with ESXI, can I just use MegaRAID Storage Manager with it or is there also a bios where I can setup RAID?

to use MegaRaid Storage Manager you would have to run an os on esxi

though tbh it isnt needed

 

just set up the drives in the MPTSAS2 bios before esxi boots

I opted for the P222 without Cache (its only a lab ;)  ) £49 with low profile bracket. subscribed to P222 and got a daily update and it was in there.
