definitely sounds like a board incompatibility then. If it isnt even booting into windows something is definitely wrong. If it was just a Card Boot ROM issue it would still get to windows, it just wouldnt initialize the arrays on the card. It might even show up in MegaRaid... Back when i was having issues with my old ICH9R it was because of Boot ROM priority. But this sounds like an all about compatibility problem. Can you list all of the devices you have on that board enabled, PCI add on cards, etc? Maybe we can find a solution.

It's fine, I ran the CLI and it worked fine in Vista x64. I flashed the card without an array on it before all of my drives arrived.

Im thinking his issue is that the card has LSI firmware on it. Thats the only reason i can think of that the Dell tool wont find his device. I think his best bet would be to run the firmware tool as duckie has in the 1st post here but instead of the LSI firmware bin use a dell firmware rom file.

Now I'll sound really dumb, but I bought a chipset cooler for the right-most part of the card(don't know how to call it), but I can't find a heatsink for the smaller one in the center of the card. Any tips? I'm in Canadia. D;

Are you talking about the ARM chip? If so then you probably don't have to worry about cooling it - though gluing a small heatsink on it couldn't hurt.

thats how everyone is doing it (those who bother to cool it) they use thermal adhesive.

Just ordered a PERC 6/i... benchmarks to come!

I also finally found the PERC 5/i vs 6/i PDF: http://www.dell.com/Downloads/Global...0255-Dixit.pdf

So, what's the difference between the PERC 5/i and the PERC 6/i?

Updated above.

Native PCIe, RAID6 support, onboard 256MB cache, LSI processor (cheaper but better).
