duczkry, Success: after setting „PreferMSI“ to NO the raid shows up all the time in profiler. Thank you so much for your time and effort.

This fixed the same exact issue with my 8708EM2, thanks!

hello there 

 

I have a M1015 (SAS2008 based, LSI 9240 8i equivalent) , PCI ID 0x1000 , 0x0073

first tested with old Bios (20.10.1-0126_SAS_2008_FW_Image_APP2.130.374-2023)

then with latest LSI Bios (20.13.1-0208_SAS_2008_FW_Image_APP_2.130.404-3836) 

 

tested with PreferMSI set to true and false

 

running Yosemite 10.10.2 on a hackintosh , booting via Clover (tested both UEFI and Legacy)

 

I am getting this console output with the Debug Kext:

 

kernel[0]: [SASMegaRAID] InitializeController
kernel[0]: [SASMegaRAID] [Helper] Region starting at 0xf7d60000
kernel[0]: [SASMegaRAID] Memory mapped at virtual address 0xf1af0000, length 8192

kernel[0]: [SASMegaRAID] MRAID_Poll
kernel[0]: [SASMegaRAID] Unable to init firmware
kernel[0]: [SASMegaRAID] Can't attach device
kernel[0]: [SASMegaRAID] IOService->free
 
 
controller doesn't appears on Parallel SCSI 
on windows works OK
 
any ideas on how to make this work?
 
thanks

kernel[0]: [SASMegaRAID] Unable to init firmware

 

Hi.

You need to flash your card with 9240 IR (= MegaRAID) firmware.

Thanks for the reply

 

I believe I have MegaRAID firmware, since the device id is 0x1000 , 0x0073, and on boot I can enter Control-H to get to the raid configuration interface where I can create virtual disks

 

on linux the module megarais_sas is loaded, reporting this device : LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 2008 [Falcon] [1000:0073]

 

on Windows the device detected is LSI MegaRAID SAS Controller

 

I flash this boards using the MegaCli command line, so I asume I am using a MegaRAID firmware

 

I could try to crossflash to 9211 IR , like some others on this topic, but I think the PCI id changes to 0x1000 , 0x0072 and I dont know if this driver would work either

 

is there a specific firmware version I can download that is know to work with this boards ? 

 

is there anything else I could try ?

 

thanks again

dangil, 

 

Unfortunately there's nothing more I can do in your situation.

You'd better to ask some person, who had a positive experience using that particular card and this kext, probably: http://www.insanelym...mily/?p=1976895 Not sure how well it went for him though.

Thanks anyway.

 

I gave up.. 

 

after a lot of testing, I believe this card doesn't play well with my Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H-BK board.
