I also don't see anything about the Reconstruction Wizard in the LSI software.

EDIT: I just found it =D
I guess people were having problems with the RAID card not booting if you did a warm reboot. I'm running the 0061 firmware and have not had any issues whatsoever.

Also, let me know how the OCE goes because I'll be adding 3 more TB to my array

I'm running 066 firmware, mainly because it apparently fixed a few things, notably "Data integrity issue with multi row write".
I do get warm boot issues, but not all the time, reboot from Windows has worked, exit from bios and reboot doesn't work. But I can live with that.
Is anyone able to set the BBU to 'Warn' with LSI firmware? I get error 0x03 or something

What's the 'data integrity' issue about?

A traditional RAID-5 array is several disks organized in rows and columns. A column is a number of disks located in the same ordinal position in the array. A row is the minimal number of disks necessary to support the full width of a parity stripe. Figure 1-15 “Traditional RAID-5 Array” shows the row and column arrangement of a traditional RAID-5 array.

Figure 1-15 Traditional RAID-5 Array


This traditional array structure supports growth by adding more rows per column. Striping is accomplished by applying the first stripe across the disks in Row 0, then the second stripe across the disks in Row 1, then the third stripe across the Row 0 disks, and so on. This type of array requires all disks (partitions), columns, and rows to be of equal size.

So, in this case, if all 3 stripes were being written at the same time, it would be called a "multi-row" write

Well Just FYI the PERC5/i works with the nvidia 9400 chipset boards. If nvidia sata raid is enabled in bios, the computer does not initialize the bios boot for the PERC5/i but it does show up in device manager and the drives are in my computer.

Generally this will happen as Option ROMs have a limited amount of memory to work in, add too many and some will just fail to boot. in some cases this is due to bad programming. Dont get me started on the memory hogging Option ROMs on Promise controllers... ugh.

So could this have been the "data corruption" of VDs over 4TB that the barnett guy was talking about a while back?

You know, it is a good possibility...

Do you remember if he was using RAID5 or how big his array was? i am too lazy to search right now lol

This is the main reason I'm using it, because I thought, well presumed that that was the corruption issue. So I either risk the soft reboot or stick with slow dell, so I went all out on the soft reboot So far no issues (bar my ECC errors, but that happened on both)

I was afraid to do the 0066 firmware just because I know the 0061 worked so great for me.

I have attached firmware 7.0.1-0061 if anybody wants it.
I'm using LSI 7.0.1-0066 firmware on PERC 5/i and everything is OK
