Hi Albert & Welcome to the Forums.  Your English is fine, Don't worry about that. 

 

My only experience in the N54L & N40L with a RAID card has been the RocketRAID 2720 by Highpoint -- If INT13 is set on the card (and it is by default) then the card will take over during post -- I didn't have to do anything in the BIOS of the MicroServer.  There's a lot of stuff on HSS about it and when I get home tonight (Midwest US) I'll see if I can look it up for you. 

 

 -- we have a pretty big community and I would bet there are several folks out there that are familiar with the MegaRAID SAS 9260-8i and would hav e a more specific answer.

 

I've also used the Rocket 640L and 620A cards in the N40L & N54L -- they're not RAID cards but just SATA III cards -- and I didn't have to do anything in BIOS for them to be the Boot.

Hope this helps and someone with LSI experience in a MicroServer can help much more.

That's if you want to boot from it.

If you want to just set up an array, download the LSI MegaRAID Storage manager software.

I had a similar problem with my BR10i (a rebadged LSI 3082E-R) and the solution was to flash the microserver with a modified BIOS which has an option to enable 'int 19 capture'. This allows the card to take over at boot and enter the web utility.

 

Look here:

or

https://www.avforums.com/threads/hp-n36l-n40l-n54l-microserver-updated-ahci-bios-support.1521657/

 

If you search 'int 19 capture n54L bios' you should be able to dig up some additional information.

 

Cheers,

Phil
