Yesterday installed LSI 9271-4i RAID card (power consumption 5w). Works good, but LSI WebBIOS available only from Legacy Boot Mode. With UEFI it is impossible to configure RAID controller. Sadly, I could not find the setting called CSM Boot Mode, to configure Microserver Gen10 Plus boot properly.

What version firmware is on the 9271-4i? Have you checked to see if the 9271-4i is UEFI compatible?

Hi, schoondoggy.

 

Firmware version is 3.460.115-6465.

Yes, megaraids should support uefi since SAS-1 series from 2011:

LSI MegaRAID controllers have uEFI drivers built into the firmware and are compliant with both uEFI 2.2 and 2.3 specs.

 

But I ran into another problem: overheat. Microserver has very tight layout, so without additional fan for 9271-4i temperatures going over 110 °C (images attached with external fan and without).

 

Still thinking what to do next.

Of course 🙂

The main reason for doing this is performance of hard drives. LSI controller sometimes comes with 1GB cache module LSICVM01 and supercapacitor. From the other side, there is no cache module for HPE E208i-p, and of course LSI cheaper, it is possible to buy a used card. Note is LSI 92xx series officially unsupported in ESXi 7.0, but it still works perfectly.
