I flashed h330 mini mono with hba330 fw but it shows no device(hdd) is connected. I know you don't suggest reverting to H330 firmware but I can't get sbr data from another h330 card. readsbr command is not working for me. I stuck at this situations
Finally, I figured out. I erased fw with sas3flsh -o -e 6 and I used hba330 mini mono
fw. It shows all drives connected to the controller now. Could you update your post about mini mono products?
So you did it bro?!?
I had a R430 on shipment coming to me by this Thursday and was going to test this out, but looks like it worked? Awesome!
That's what Im talking about!
Tell me what you did my friend. Did you follow my same method?
Yup, the right thing to do was to use the HBA330 mini mono firmware.
So I'm pretty scientific in my testing and I recorded a shit-ton of data. Unfortunately for you, you opened a can of worms.
I haz questions....
Did you use perccli?
Was the flashing process easier with megacli?
Did you do a full manufacturer erase using -o -e 7? If so, did it erase the sas address?
What error code did you receive on the mini mono adapter when you wrote the SBR?
Did it return with a specific interrupt code?
Did you attempt a flash with the firmware by itself? No Bios?
Did you flash the 12Gbps HBA firmware? What did the manufacturer page settings in nvram report?
Did it allow you to update to the latest HBA330 Mini mono firmware?
If you used PERCCLI, did you have to downgrade the firmware with the download=file noverchk command?
What did the cleanflash command give you upon writing the SBR?
Did you test in Windows environment? What OS are you using?
Sorry! Those are just a few questions I have. I would have been able to answer them myself, but you went and did the hard work, so now I need to know! Lol!
(Just so you know, you dont have to answer or any questions if you dont want to, Im just curious, and will find out most of my answers when I get my Dell system in this week)
Nice work bro! I suspected it would work the same, but I wanted to verify myself before posting to the thread just in case I ran into any snags. The 12th gen adapters according to BL, had some issues getting flashed over, but this confirms my suspicions that we are able to bypass this on the 13th Gen adapters.
Looking good bro. Oh, by the way, welcome to STH. Nice work.
