Ok so what about getting a new set of loops and trying to attach them to the card? Do u thing that would be a possibility (im relatively good with a soldering iron) the only problem is where to find these things.

Any ideas??

Tnx

Definetly an option. Most if not all Dell GX260/280 motherboards use hook/loops on the chipset heatsink, the spacing of the heatsink is bigger, but not sure if the loops are the same size.

You could always make your own though. Get some nice safety pin/paperclip that fits through the PCB holes, cut/bend to shape. Lightly sand/emery paper the ends and tin with solder. Then solder to board. (PS. I have not tried this, nor do I take any responsibility of failure, only success)

The problem with is that im not sure that a steal (iron) paper clip will hold but i can sure try as soon as i order a 6i board

In that case, yes. Just remove what's left of the current loops since they go through the entire PCB. Then use a piece of wire or paper clip and solder that in.
Once again...

Use the clip from a BINDER CLIP. Thats what I used on my Perc 5i.

Just make sure you bend the metal only ONCE one-way. Bend it back and the metal will snap. Its pretty strong, and handy if you have a spare BINDER CLIP.

I'm trying to resize a partition. I have tried GParted Live and Acronis Disk Director and they both cause the system to reboot. GParted gets to a certain spot in the loading then just reboots, and Acronis causes the reboot when you go to resize and then it tries to lock the disk. I'm not sure what drivers I'm using (would affect GParted), but I've tried both the 0066 and 0061 firmware from LSI. I can't seem to figure out what the problem is. I'll try the Dell firmware when I get home from work unless someone has a better idea.

Also, I seem to be able to do warm reboots fine with both 0066 and 0061 firmware (780G chipset if that matters).

Canada,

I'm sorry that this doesn't answer your question above, but how did the OCE go? I have another TB drive coming in and I've never done it before. How'd you do it, and how long did it take?

CanadaRox, I've resized partitions on the Perc 5i, 6i, and 6E cards using Paragon Partition manager 8.5 Enterprise Edition.

I've had no problems with it. I think they may still have a trial program. I could not get Acronis, and Partition Magic to work with those cards.

I love binder clips. So useful. Multipurpose. Kinda like duct tape.

I left it overnight, but I think it took about five or six hours to add two 500GB HDDs to my 3x500GB RAID5 (about 700GB used). Windows even forced a reboot for an update part way through and it continued without a hitch. All you have to do is go to the recovery wizard, and one of the options is to add a new drive. Just select that, and follow the instructions. And make sure you don't accidentally set it to change to RAID0 as that seems to have been the default settings (its located on the lower right corner of one of the screens).

I'll try that software after work Saturday, hopefully it is able to resize it successfully. Thanks for the advice.

EDIT: Paragon caused the same crash as every other program I've tried. I'm going to try the Dell firmware again and see if that stops the crashes.

Double Edit: Still isn't working.
