Unable to boot from Intel sasuc8i after firmware update

I have an SASUC8I contrtoller which worked in an Acer Altos G330 server (intel s3000ahv mainboard) through more than one year serving two disks at RAID1 mode.

After I updated the card's firmware with EPSD_SAS_FW_v.2011.06.03_ph20upd version the motherboard BIOS not recognise the SAS card as a boot device. I can enter into the raid card's BIOS with Ctrl+C, make the RAID array but can not boot from it.

According to the manual I shall make one disk as boot device under the SAS topology menu using Alt+b but this combination does not available. I don't remember whether I used Alt+b or not one years ago when the server was configured. I just suspect that It cause the problem but I'm not sure.

I made the flashing according to the readme and the result was "succesful" but It seems that wasn't.


Did somebody has similar problem which has been sold?
