I have a IBM x342 with a IBM ServeRAID 4LX raid card in it. We had to replace the battery on the raid card and after powering it up we get:
2 logical drives offline & 5 online drives defunct"...and then "SCSI BIOS not installed"

We tried copying the config from the drives to the controller already but it errored with "E000h"

any thoughts?
