In Topic: Driver for LSI MegaRAID SAS family

No, I never meant to imply that your driver was the cause. I definitely didn't mean to defame your driver and I'm sorry you took it that way. I'm just trying to figure out what changed during my testing and I was letting you know what the differences were so we could figure it out. Now that you've told me that it's not the driver upon further testing, I now know to check elsewhere. When I said "whatever", I just meant that if something had changed in newer versions of OSX that the -f flag no longer worked the way I expected, that I would just use the newer method you suggested instead.

I just want to thank you for making this driver available and to continue working on it for us. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

@dukzcry, I found the command lines that I'm sure cvad's utility uses and they seemed to work fine. I've always been able to do -f -v at bootup when I needed to add drivers and never had a problem with it before now, but whatever. No big deal.

Any idea why your 64bit LBA still isn't detecting my 2.5TB drives properly? The drives show up as 2.2TB and don't even show the data partition. They show up in Windows as 2.47TB drives so I don't think it's the controller, but rather the driver. Has anyone been successful in running a 3TB+ RAID array using your driver yet?

So after some more testing, MSI doesn't lock up my computer like you said and the card does show up as a Parallel SCSI card in System Profiler, but no drives are detected at all. They not only don't mount, but they aren't visible either. That being said, when I use IRQ mode, it seems to work only if I don't do a "-f" at the bootloader. If I do a "-f", no drives mount, though they are visible.

Should this be used with MSI or not?

Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the MSI works and doesn't hang up the boot up like it did before. It doesn't interfere with USB or anything like before and all drives are seen by Disk Util and such, but I still can't mount any NTFS partitions. I think something happened to my NTFS driver or something. I'll try reapplying the 10.8.3 update to see if it fixes the problem. It is probably an issue with my computer, so MSI should work for others with PERC 6/i.

Actually, I take it back. After another reboot, I have the hangup again and no Parallel SCSI in System Profiler again. I guess MSI isn't working.
