Hi,

Drinking and flashing firmware does not mix!
I was well in my cups the other night and I screwed up.

I have a test server for VCenter and it has a Promise Supertrak EX8350.
I booted into a FREEDOS live disk.
and update
1) BIOS on the Promise
2) Redboot on the Promise
3) Firmware on the Promise
ALL IN A ROW.
ALL said they updated with ZERO errors

Then I rebooted the unit and now my Dell says "possible expansion card failure"
If I remove the card that I updated all works on the Dell server.
Move the card to another unit - that units ceases to work.
I have tried all kinds of BIOS settings on the Dell
Looked for over 8 hours on google for how to disable BIOS on the card or jumpers or do ANYTHING.
I could find nothing of help.

EXCEPT this redboot thingy.
1) What is it? (promise website is useless on the topic)
2) Is there a way to get into it and reflash my card and save.

OR

Did I simply destroy one of my test labs RAID cards.

Thanks for looking
