Hi

I have just bought a AOC-SAS2LP-H8IR controller for my home server.
I have connected 4 drives to one of the ports, but nothing shows up in the MegaRAID bios.

I have a AsRock motherboard and use WD RED drives.

I have just succesfully updated the firmware to the latest one, but still no drives in the BIOS.

Can somebody point me in the right direction, to get this working?

Btw:
I have found the card on this page: Storage RAID / HBA Cards | SuperStorage Solutions | Products - Super Micro Computer, Inc.
And they say: "All standard cards (i.e. Identified w/ two red stars) cannot be used w/ non-SMCI system" about the card.

Does this mean, that I have bought the wrong card, or is there a "work-arround" to fix this?

I have used a new cable, from my adaptec controller, and now it works.
I think I have to return the InLine cables, as they dowsn't work at all!

The cable you linked to is a reverse breakout cable. It's used to connect a controller card with 4 individual SATA connectors to a backplane with a SFF-8087 connector. You need a forward breakout cable.
