    I have a 9206-16e controller I use for SATA storage on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit for JBOD movie storage. Everything appears to be running fine. Connected drives are recognized in Windows and have been running perfectly fine for about a year. But then I noticed that all along, Windows Event Viewer has been reporting 2 different errors every 30 seconds. I tested with no drives installed, and the errors persist.

    These are the errors...

    Here's are the storage controllers in the device manager...

    Driver info...
    Driver Provider: LSI
    Driver Date: 8/2/2017
    Driver Version: 2.0.79.82
    Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Here's what sas2flash is reporting for the controllers...
    Adapter Selected is a LSI SAS: SAS2308_2(D1)
    Num / Ctlr / FW Ver / NVDATA / x86-BIOS / PCI Addr
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    0 / SAS2308_2(D1) / 20.00.07.00 / 14.01.00.06 / 07.39.02.00 / 00:04:00:00
    1 / SAS2308_2(D1) / 20.00.07.00 / 14.01.00.06 / 07.39.02.00 / 00:06:00:00

    As I understand, I prefer no bios installed because it makes boot take a long time, and I won't be using bootable disks. But sas2flash appears to report bios is installed (x86-BIOS?). Also, Windows boots instantly in my case.

    Everything runs smooth and fast, except these errors being reported in Windows Event Viewer. I've exhausted all info I can find online. Any ideas?

    It was the adapter. I replaced the card and no more errors.
