Description

We found in the field that pciex1000,86 can be driven by mpt_sas(7d). This particular instance was on a Supermicro motherboard. The Nexenta field person reported:

We did flash with IT firmware

ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/driver/SAS/LSI/2308/Firmware/IT/

We believe there is a conflict between the UEFI BIOS and the current sasflsh.exe utility included. Please use EFI version of the sas2flash tool (sas2flash.efi), instead.
You can download it from LSI website or contact Supermicro Tech Support (support@supermicro.com).

Here is the instruction:

1. Save FW and utility to USB flash drive
2. Boot to UEFI shell
3. Change to flash drive. Usually it’s fs0, but please confirm with "map" command first.
- Shell> map
- Shell> fs0:
4. Start flash the firmware:
- Shell> sas2flash o -e 6
Shell> sas2flash.efi f 2008IT12.FW
Shell> sas2flash -b mptsas2.rom
