Hey guys,
i bought a sun oracle F320 3.2TB NVME PCIe Drive. Sadly my windows server doesnt start the drive.
It has code 10. The device cant be started. It is not available.
Any idea how to fix this? or do i have a damaged drive?
Thanks.
1. Start a new thread please.
And post additional info plz :D
2. How do you have it connected to your system?
3. What "is" your new system made up of? (Hardware, Software\OS, etc)

have you tried installing the drive on different pci-e slots ?? or maybe even another machine ?? if it still giving you the same error than most likely the drive is broken.

You might give this a try, It won't hurt anything, You cover these two pins with some tape...

I bought the same card off ebay as well... Man is it fast !!!

But I will tell you I had one of the same cards go bad on me after about three months...

Code:
sudo apt-get install nvme-cli
sudo nvme list
sudo nvme fw-download /dev/nvme__ --fw='/__/MS1PC2DD3.IR3Q.fw'
sudo nvme fw-activate /dev/nvme__ --action=1
sudo nvme reset /dev/nvme__
I tried the steps you provided, on the reset it is giving the following error:

"Error: requesting reset on non-controller handle"

Any ideas how to update firmware in Windows?
gparted live ISO or any other recent live Linux distro?

As Samsung isn’t too forthcoming with firmware they aren’t with tools either. You could try the intel datacenter tool but I doubt it will work on Samsung drives.
