How can I get Highpoint 620 working?

Recommended Posts

I'm on DSM 5.2-5644 Update 5 on an N54L with the modded BIOS.

 

I've just added in a Highpoint 620 card to give me some extra ports, and by attaching a monitor to the N54L I can see that in the list of devices at boot the card is indeed listed as being present in the slot. In Xpenology itself though, there is no mention of the card at all. I thought (it would appear incorrectly!) that this would work in the Xpenology setup - any pointers as to anything I'm doing wrong please?

 

Thanks.

it looks like its based on the Marvell chipset which has drivers in XPE5.2, but you might need to disable raid settings on the card bios - set it to jbod/non-raid/it mode, which ever is shown

Thanks but I can't get at the card Bios. If I disable quick boot so I can see the POST screen, I can see that the machine sees an ide controller in pcie 1,and has assigned IRQ 4 and 10 to it. I cannot for the life of me (spent an hour last night) get the card Bios prompt to appear though. Any ideas?

Oh right, never realised that, thanks. The manual is less than helpful. Should be able to do a temporary fit to one of my other machines to update the Bios settings. Cheers.
