Not sure where you see the h800 having internal ports, but it is external only. The h700 is the internal port model. As for the sata only thing, im guessing its some sort of CYA from dell since they cant account for which drive chassis it will be plugged into.for DELL PERC H800 Adapter, it's listed as having internal ports. I can only find ones with external ports. Is this a mistake or some magical impossible to find card?
Also, slightly off topic, but DELL says that the H800 doesn't work with SATA drives. WTF? Shouldn't this work?
looks like a typo from the OP. If you click the link right beneath it, it clearly states h800 = external ports
I just ordered one... now I just need to find a non-asus board to test it in...Can we add this Asus card to the LSI 3008 list:
Even though it's a PIKE II card but from all descriptions/appearance it's a standard PCI-e card
My understanding is that MR and iMR run similar base firmware, but iMR cards don't have DDR memory and are generally feature limited compared to full MR.Can anyone explain me the difference between MR and iMR controller. I bought a used 9280-4e4i and when I tried to update the latest firmware from MSM it says I can't flash a MR firmware to an iMR controller. So the controller I have seems to be iMR. Is that OEM?
Any pointers on how to flash the card would be greatly appreciated. I have some experience in cross flashing Dell H200 to IT firmware before. So not a complete novice. I would need the RAID functionality and was trying to use a advanced feature key to enable cachecade.
