I have an HP DL380 running Windows 2003 x32 with a PCI-X LSI Ultra 320 Scsi adapter hooked up to an HP SSL1016 ULT460 AUTOLOADER.  This has been running flawlessly for years.  I got the brilliant idea of running the HP Firmware Update CD (auto run) version firmware-9.20B-0.  Ran fine, with no errors.  Now when the server boots up (with the Autoloader on) it takes about an hour for the Scsi card to scan.  Version info at boot up is MPTBios 5.05.21.00 HP Build.  I have found reference on the 'net about the StorPort driver being an issue with Windows 2003.  I have installed that, no help.  I have rolled back the LSI Logic driver also, no help.  Sounds like to me the firmware update has killed it.  Current Windows driver (LSI Adapter, Ultras 320 ScSi 2000 series, w/1020/1030(StorPort) 1.24.04.00.  Anybody know if I can run older firmware to convert back?  Or just any suggestions to get this working again?  Thanks

LSI does not show firmware for the LSI20320-IE, which is probably the card you have.  However, the LSI20320-IE is the PCI Express version of the LSI20320-R, which does have firmware available.  That firmware might work.  And then again, it might brick the card permanently.

Strongly suggest that you contact LSI's technical support before proceeding any further.  They are probably aware of the issue and may have a fix for you.
