I hope this helps! Anyway, I am glad you were able to fix it. Oh, well, I got the ctlrs for cheap, so it’s the exposition of the another old adage: It’s got the ICE 27C chip on 068.

That’s a guess, but that’s what I get from reading the on-line pages that accompany the DL links. After downloading both, create a bootable floppy and copy the contents of the UpdFlash archive onto the floppy.
Oh well, you live and you learn! Well at least we tried.
I blew off the rest of the afternoon, and took advantage of the near perfect weather here in Twin Mountain to ‘Take a Hike! Enjoy and please do let me know how it goes! These RAID ctlrs aren’t particularly intelligent, and don’t handle error conditions very well.

To create a mirror i put the card and 2 drives in another system that allowed me to enter the RAID bios, set it to mirror, replaced it in the system with issues and Viola! I add the ‘bad sector’ drive. I had to search the CD for the correct driver for it.
I have had the same problems as mentioned above with the SIL card.
Add both bad drives, ditto. Every time I try to do it, it states cannot open file. I do not know if re-flashing the BIOS will work in your case, but it is worth a try.

Thanks to Mike for doing the research on the ctlr, I did get newerand more elaborate, versions of the docs. One common mistake is that no floppy activity may occur during this time so people will hard reboot causing the flash to fail and corrupting the controller BIOS which there is an easy fix if this should happen, I will be able to explain it if you need it.
BTW, something I thought of today and tried out: Sign In Sign Up. The flashing procedure may take up to as long as 10 min. I use am a consultant and have used the card in many applications including my own. I DLed everything I could find.
That’s assuming, of course, that the CD comes with its flash writing tool, which is a leap of faith. Posted August 29, The boot process proceeds notmally, and the ctlr prints out the msg: Go here and go:.

I just ran UpdFlash v3. It worked last night, but it must have to do something with sessions being. Posted June 7, I actually attached a sip to the ctlr, still no go.
