Hello

 

I switched my Raid controller from a

LSI 9212 4i

to a

LSI 9260 8i

 

Due to the reason that I had the 4 drives attached to this controller in non raid status (ungonfigured;good)

I thought it is just a replacing of the controller.

 

BUT ...

now I have the issue no boot drive or the old one is not recognized as such.

 

Do you have any help for me please

I don't know.

 

I updated the new 9260 with the latest firmware right after installing.

The old controller was a gift from my company IT guy and I changed nothing there. Just plugged it in and the drives had been recognized.

At least my data should be on the drives without issues. as long as I do not use BIOS for creating something new raids ...

I tried to add one drive with the no data loss option in the wizard to a virtual drive but it did not boot from it (it was the previous drive C)

It has been a while since I played with a LSI BIOS, do you see a place to mark the drive as active?
