Also thinking of getting another one, and see if I can get the Intel firmware to work on it. Unless anyone has already tried this?

UPDATE: Fixed it - stupidly, when I transferred the firmware over to the Ubuntu box (FTP), I did not set binary mode - did so, and all ok!

Hi Guys

No point in letting a good thread die, now is there!??!

Trying to flash one of these expanders and have sg_write_buffer fail. SG Version is 1.28 20180628.

Please see attached screenshot.flash.JPG

Anyone have and idea why?

Expander is on a 9201, and works fine. Zero drives attached to the 9201 or expander when trying to flash.

Using Ubuntu live.


Thanks in advance.
