  1. Thank you very much for the info, unfortunately, it seems like the MB is too old or something, as I cannot get past the hang from the HBA bios whatever I do in the MB bios. So instead I went out and picked up a Supermicro MBD-X9SRH-7F-O with 64GB of Hynix RDIMMs and slammed a Xeon E5-2630V2 / 2.6 GHz inside. My wife will kill me, but I now run ESXI 5.5 with I/O passthrough to the XPEnology server, the migration went smooth and no data was lost, even after moving the 8 drives from previously being on the Marvell controller of the old MB, over to the HBA through ESXI. I don't think I will ever g
  2. Thank you for coming through with advice, it is much appreciated. I have looked across the web for solutions, and I opened up my main driver which has UEFI BIOS It's a Gigabyte GA-Z97N-Gaming 5 (Mini ITX). I tried to first go down the path of using reFind, to no awail, I get the message "InitShellApp: application not started from shell". I searched more on this subject and I could read that I had to use some Shellx64.efi file onto a fat32 usb and boot from it. I tried to change BIOS settings to get it to boot into that shell, but had no luck. So I then tried to do it the DOS way on my
  3. Thanks for the info! I have located the firmware from LSI site, the 9201-16i_Package_P19_IT_Firmware_BIOS_for_MSDOS_Windows zip. I am very new to this, so if someone could maybe point me in the direction of where I can read a step-by-step guide? Do I need to boot MS-DOS on the server? Cheers in advance,
  4. Something weird happened and the post got duped due to some error in BBcode, apparently.
  5. Hello guys, Anyone have this card installed? Can I use it out of the box, or do I need to do something with it before I boot into Xpenology? I'm running from XPEnoboot 5.2-5565.2 (07/06/2015) Here are the specs of my motherboard.

  7. Thank you very much! This looks like a great controller!
  8. Well, I'm happy that someone actually cares and want to help at all. If I could ask, which controller would you recommend for a decent price, and where I can at least put 8 disks on it (and later maybe use expanders) that I can use with Xpenology?
  9. I'm confused now. Is it an ok card or not?
  10. Thanks, I cancelled the order after your recommendation. Maybe I'll order a better card at some other time. I'm brand new in this game, so I don't know what to look for really. Anyway, thanks for the help
  11. Adding more drives to SHR and SHR2 is not complicated: Remember the following, it will consume some time to expand the disk. So please add them to the disk group first, then expand the volume (unless you want to create a second volume.) Keep in mind the following: - The drive you add must be equal or bigger in size then the biggest drive you already have installed. So if your SHR group consists of 1x500GB, 2x 2TB and 1x 4TB - you would want to add a 4TB or higher. - If the disk group is near its brim, that is, if your data occupies more than 80% of the drives, you are looking at a f
  12. Hello, I found this cheap 16 Sata port card with 4 SAS ports on DX.com which is named IOCREST IO-PCE9215-16I http://www.iocrest.com/en/product_details440_a.html I suspect it implements some sort of marvell chip, but I'm not certain. Have a look here for the chip: http://www.marvell.com/storage/system-s ... -brief.pdf I wondered if this chip is supported already, because I will then try it once I get the card from the manufacturer. And hopefully it works. If not, could someone point me in the direction where I can find the .ko and I will try to inject it myself into the kernel?
  13. I would like to see a driver for rtl8811AU in the next pack. It can be found in the following link and supports linux kernel up to 3-10 (DSM 5.2). http://www.dlink.com/uk/en/home-solutio ... sb-adapter Thank you very much!
