    Original LSI SAS 9300 16i - Problem Flashing. Please Help!

    I also have LSI9300-16i and have been messing around with it this morning. Thanks for your post. I followed the commands you posted and noticed that although I used "sas3flash.efi -c 0 -o -e 7" the second 3008 would show up when I input "sas3flash.efi -c 1 -list" so, I went ahead and...

    Buf-E really is a beast. I have a ASRock D-1541, only because i sniped it off ebay for 220 including tax :). I recently got a X10SDV-4C-TLN2F (i think that last part is right), and I am going to be making it a baremetal truenas server. I am currently contemplating if I want another Cooljag...

    I appear to have been airing some ideas lol. So I currently have a System on Chip Intel Xeon D-1541 8C/16T 2.3/2.7 (i believe those spec numbers for speed) ASRock D1541DU_2T8R. I also had access to either i5-11500 or i5-11500T. I really like the ASRock board I feel it is an ideal storage board...

    Now is there a way to Have ASROck TrueNAS + Plex Transcoding System + Pure Storage JBOD Rackmount?
