Cannot Configure/update Raid Controller Bios, Raid Bios Crashes on boot
Posted on 2008-10-01
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2550, with an adaptec perc 3/di raid controller integrated. I have set the scsi drives (4 x 16) to RAID in the bios and when the raid controller bios tries to load it just says error loading raid bios press any key to continue.
I have tried going into the configuration, <ctrl>+m and it doesn't respond.
I have tried using the firmware updater for this card from Dell and it just says no compatible BIOS images found on disk.
The ram and id card piece seem to be intact and working, and the Battery pack is present but I have done no specific testing on that (i.e. volt-meter).
I want to set this up as a RAID 5 if I can.
