    Update BIOS on SRCS16 RAID Controller


      I'm trying to use an SRCS16 RAID controller in a system with a S7320SP motherboard.

      Whenever I try to power up the system with the SRCS16 installed I get a 'Parity Error', and can't get to the BIOS configuration.

      I have come across an article saying that there may be a BIOS version issue happening.



      The S7320SP now has the latest (11.x ) BIOS


      This article says that I need to update the BIOS on the SRCS16 by disabling the on-board NIC on the motherboard.

      However no matter what I do, I am unable to get the system to start with the SRCS16 installed.


      I've also tried installing the SRCS16 in at least one other system (a HP DL380 G4), temporarily just to update the BIOS, but this also conflicts (probably with the onboard SCSI Controller).


      I'm struggling to find a system with either a 32 bit or 64 bit 3.3v PCI slot.


      I'm unsure the current BIOS in the SRCS16.


      I have a number of versions of the BIOS for the SRCS16 ( up to ver 713S )


      Any help would be appreciated
