    VROC with VMD Tech 5.3.0.1052

    skrettis

      PCIe slotted 4 times Samsung SM961 1TB disk in a Supermicro X11DPI-NT mobo - and the disk are listed out of the box. :-)

       

      All is Compatitible with: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/virtual-raid-on-cpu-vroc-product-brief.pdf

      With VROCSTANDMOD (black) there was a Whitepaper:  J51303-004 from April 2017 is NOT updated, that tells me to CTRL+...  ->POST bios NOT shown.

       

      Upgradekey: Standard (Seems OK)

      Intel VMD controller - > NO disk is avaliable!

       

      Also UPDATED to latest AMI bios:

      X11DPi-N17_C05.zip\X11DPi-N17.C05\

       

      Why cant I configure the NVME raid?  

       

      A fast answer is Welcome!
