I'm having a simular issue with the linux boot. Although i am running on dell hardware (R720) any thoughts of what could be causing the image to not boot correctly. (note image is being booted throught idrak7 Vmedia)The only other person I've seen with this issue (driver erroring out on linux boot), also had their card in a non-dell server ( a supermicro). Given you're having the exact same issue trying to flash the card in an HP, it's probably not much of a reach to say that the LSI MPT driver only likes RAM-booting these cards in dell servers for some reason. It could be a mixture of options in BIOS, not sure. Make sure anything regarding SR-IOV, I/OAT / DMA Engine etc are disabled in bios, and make sure the bios is up to date. if it still fails, you may need to find a dell server to do the flash in
if you don't have the info saved down anywhere, you'll have to pull the card and look at the part number on the back. the info command uses megacli commands to dump info, which is a toolset for megaraid cards - it won't see cards that have been flashed to IT modeI'm trying to revert the flash - going back to RAID mode - but ehm.. info doesn't spit out anything at the moment (possibly because its flashed already) - how to find out which model I have now?
