I don't have that board, but I think the bit about connecting JSD1 to the power supply is wrong. That tiny connector supplies power to the SATA DOM. A short cable goes from the motherboard JSD1 connector to another tiny connector on the side of the SATA DOM. Just make sure that your SATA DOM...
Your NVME device is formatted for 4k sectors. I'm not a DBA, but a little Googling indicates that running Oracle DBMS on top of a filesystem using 4k sectors probably isn't going to work well (something about incompatibility with direct I/O).
You could probably use the Linux "nvme format"...
I missed it before, but your "nvme list" output shows the format to be 512 B + 8 B.
When your Windows format is done, you might try in Ubuntu:
nvme id-ns /dev/nvme0n1
My NVME drive is showing 512 B + 0 B as the format.
There's a "nvme format" command in Linux that looks like it lets you...
That definitely doesn't look right. I wonder if Windows is getting confused by the large capacity? What version of Windows, by the way?
Since you've created a GPT under Linux and started a slow format of the partition under Windows, let's see what happens with that.
Good, that tells us that Linux recognizes the NVME drive and shows its correct 7 TB size and that the block size is 512B.
It also says that there is no recognizable partition table. So, normally the next step would be to create a GPT partition table, make partition(s), and format the...
As azev pointed out, the drive is not SAS, it's NVME. That means that the sg* utilities aren't going to be useful, because those utilities are designed to work with the SCSI protocol.
It's encouraging that your HD Sentinel and Crystal Disk Info output shows the model number and firmware...
I bought two Cloudspeed 3.84TB drives from this auction. According to smartctl, they're unused: 0 hours of power-on time, 0 LBAs read or written.
The same seller has another listing showing 2 still available.
I received my 3820 GB SSD today. The packaging was the same as poto's. Power-on hours was 1. The amount of data written and read was 3.82 TB, matching the drive capacity, so it was probably a QA test of some sort.
I kind of wish I had picked up a second one.
I just tested it, and it doesn't work for me either. The internal USB is getting power, but I never saw the LED flicker on the flash drive. External USB ports work fine. I didn't see anything in the BIOS that looked relevant, either.
