i have an HP dl140 g2 1u rackmount server. it's an excellent machine, but i'm having this issue: upon boot, it states
expansion rom not initialized - pci mass storage controller on bla bla bla...
press f1 to continue or f10 to setup
if i press f10, the bios clearly states that all (both) pci-x slots are enable and whatnot
if i press f1 to continue, the server boots just fine, but i can't determine a windows driver to suit the device. windows home server 2011 identifies the device as a mass storage controller, but auto update immediately declines providing a driver. i've tried downloading several drivers and architectural variations of those drivers listed as cards compatible with the dl140 g2. device manager reads PCI\VEN_0E11&DEV_AE10&SUBSYS_40320E11&REV_03
on the hardwareID. a google of that only yields one result of an event log from somebody's server.
the card itself reads COMPAQ 2CH LVD/SE SCSI ARRAY CNTRLLR or something to that effect. i've traced that back to a few different LSI drivers, none of which worked. one reported installing correctly, but upon reboot threw a "device could not start" error.
i previously had an escalade 9800s sata raid controller for an 8 drive JBOD export, but now i'm attaching an HP storageworks MSA20, which requires the external scsi port. this pci-x dual channel vhdci scsi controller was included with the server, and is full size. most HP documentation refers to a single channel low profile in slot 2.
at any rate, i recently switched up from a DL380 G3, and between server downtime and SEVERAL drives not being hosted, any help resolving this issue is greatly appreciated!
