I have a Perc H700 (flashed to 9260) connected to a "5 in 3" and a "3 in 2" hotswap drive cage. Server is running Windows Server 2012 R2.

I had a drive show up as "Unconfigured Bad", so I pulled it to swap in a new drive. As soon as I pulled the drive, the server crashed and rebooted. I verified that I had pulled the correct drive. Has anyone come across this before? Perc has the latest firmware and drivers.

flashback to original H700 firmware again

I have no idea on flashing H700 to lsi, since dell has their own decision on the hardware

as my rule of thumb:
1) is this dell card? flash with dell firmware, since Dell has many to do something on the background
2) is thi IBM/Lenovo (lsi) card? flash with LSI firmware, since I am sure 99% that they use identical hardwaare design from LSI..

good luck!
