I finally got sometime to play with it. After running storcli.efi /c0 /eXX download src=S1Q_LSI_FW_v1.0.8.fw, I got a success reported.Spent a few hours trying to get this working with storcli, keeps giving me an error, see attached. The enc ID is 12 and 252, tried both, no go.
Anyone else have any luck yet?
What process did you use to boot an efi shell?I finally got sometime to play with it. After running storcli.efi /c0 /eXX download src=S1Q_LSI_FW_v1.0.8.fw, I got a success reported.
I think the tricky part would be:
1. Run upgrade without any disk connected.
2. Run upgrade in EFI shell instead of any OS. I think it will limit device mounting or something.
I only put single 1TB SATA (ST1000DM003) to test the disk cage from cold start. And the disk shows up correctly. I'm considering to move the SAS3108 from the other server to this one to get better RAID performance.
Attached a screenshot to show the FW version numbers.
Wish your upgrade will be same smooth as mine.
yea, I select the UEFI boot shell, it says booting and then dumps me back into the bios settings.Now im not sure, but many server products have the efi shell built in to the bios so its available as a boot option. Either F12 (or other button) to have quick boot menu and boot directly to EFI shell. Again, Im not sure this product has this built in.
Sometimes it's necessary to press some button or escape to get it to stay inside the shell. But it could also be that it is searching for the EFI on a USB stick or something to boot from there. Are you trying on this exact product? Maybe someone that has it can verify.then dumps me back
