I've been through all these 530-8i threads but are there any consolidated instructions on updating the 530-8i to IT mode only? Seems like Freenas doesn't like the MR mode firmware and chokes.

Perfect. I could not download or backup the existing partitions but I updated to IT mode just fine and flashed the legacy BIOS. Freenas now boots up properly and no timeouts.

Could you please share the detailed step?

>>> Finally made it flashing to IT Mode!...

But got lost on this parts
  • Set SAS address
    #storcli /c0 set sasadd=500...
  • Set assembly number
    #storcli /c0 set assemblynumber=03-5000...
  • Set tracer number/serial number
    #storcli /c0 set tracernumber=SP..
Where I can get this numbers??
