Patriot,I wanted to start a thread as a compilation of Servers/motherboards and cards tested
HP SA cards are very fast and stable but often have issues dealing with non-HP boards.
While this will change in the future with PMC licensing the SA brand this is the present we live in.
For those that have used HP cards in white boxes if you would list the configuration and any tweaks required to make it work.
I have a P222 running in an Asus Z9PE-D16/2L and it required turning off Option rom prompting in the bios. Otherwise it would hang on drive initialization.
Of note... for those that have not tried a SA card in a whitebox but would like to...
I have a few spare p420's that you can play with.
I'd be open to experimenting with one of these cards, I have a SuperMicro X8DTE setup I can try and make work
