If the card is not found you can not update the firmware.  error lights come on at startup just after the self test.
That's why I wrote 'firmware_s_' .
Sometimes a BIOS update can fix that.

Which error lights do light up and what do these stand for? There is some description in the handbooks. I am not familiar with IBMs standalone servers, but we use 6i controllers in some rackservers. The only problems we had were with some very old 4L controllers.

Is the card new or used? In case it has a battery on it, could it be empty? Though it should be recognized in this case.

I have replaced the card.  Never did find any documentation on the card.
