Adaptec 2805 raid problem

Recommended Posts

RHead

Hi.

 

I'm new owner of TS140.

I did have microsever n36l and adaptec 2805 card working fine.

I did try use it with TS140 but first x16 slot card won't even boot to kernel.

 

Second place it boots well and array created.

And it boots to Windows 8.1 well.

But when checking drives and etc no adaptec card working.

SKit.. No problems started. When i upgrade newest fw to card. Windows works fine untile about 3mins of boot total hang.

 

I tested that i uninstalled Adaptec driver and then no problems with win. After i enable adacter card in devicemanager about 45s and computer freezes totally.

It sounds like it may be a driver issue. Can you try a different OS, maybe a Linux variant to see if that works?


It does list Win 8 as being supported:

Looks like the TS140 is UEFI:

It looks like the 2805 is not compatible with UEFI systems:

Sorry to send all these links, but I am on a very boring conference call!

Ok. So i have to buy new or used raid card. Is there any reason to get 6g raid or should stay looking 3g raid?

Unless the 3Gbps card is extremely cheap, I'd say get a 6Gbps card just for a tiny amount of future proofing. If you ever want to attach SSDs then you'll want a card that supports 6Gbps.

I did order Adaptech 6405H. Hope it works better than old. Package is delivered about 2 weeks.
