ZFS: LSI on HP NL40: is there a way to get into this BIOS?

Hi,

As title mentions "ZFS: LSI on HP NL40: is there a way to get into this BIOS?", I'm not sure if the known bug means you cannot get into BIOS at all or not always.

Please clarify.

Reason: I like ZFS but I'm not that much impressed about performance untill now.
I might consider configuring SSD RAID for 1 ESXi. Single point of failure now would be my NAS, with ESX that would be the ESX-server (have only 3 esx-es of which mostly only 1 runs so redundancy would be the same).

Note: does the LSI sometimes prevent booting Microserver? If not, I could replace the rac-card in Nexenta ZFS with a dual-nic card ....
it can sometimes cause booting and POST issues, it's not specific to the LSI card, any card with a BIOS, e.g. any storage controller, including HP's own Smart Array 410
