I believe that the only way to upgrade the ROM of the Intel RAID controller is by the means of Bios Update.
The current version if not mistaken is 10.6.0.1091.
Okay. The only thing that confuses me now is that I've read at the OCZ forums that a couple people have been able to flash the OROM. Plus, the Intel Command Line Tools have an option to flash the controller.
I know that the OPROM is bundled with the BIOS. And the current version is 10.6, that's what I have. But, why are separate OROM downloads available if you can't flash it? Would you have to mod the BIOS files and add the new version of the OROM to that?
Also, after a little digging, I found the Rapid Storage Technology 18.104.22.1685 drivers and software. In the readme it says that it was designed with OROM version 11.x.x..., so it has to be out there.
I would not assume that the newest firmware and drivers are the ones you would want to update your board with. Why chance it?
Do you think Intel is just not updating every boards support driver area? I guess that is a possibility these days.
