I just got a new server in with an LSI MegaRAID 9260-8i controller. Currently the drive (known good) is not showing up in the BIOS but does show up on the controller status and WebBIOS. How do you make the drive show up to be bootable as well as show up when installing an OS?

Thanks.

Think I'm going to probably end up answering my own question, but I still have some validation to do. Turns out that you have to make a virtual drive on the controller (RAID 0 with one drive) that can then be specified as a boot device in the BIOS. Then you select booting from the PCI card in the boot menu/BIOS and it will boot from the virtual drive. Just validating that everything works and nothing weird happens with specifying the settings that way, but so far it looks good.
