I'm new here and this is my first post. I've been searching for a possible reason why this RAID controller I purchased isn't showing up in the new server I'm building.
Its a pretty straight forward setup. Supermicro X11SSH-LN4F motherboard with Xeon E3-1230v5 and 64GB RAM. Samsung 950 PRO M.2 SSD boot drive and eight 6TB WD Red hard disks.
I originally purchased this motherboard because it supports 8 drives in RAID. I quickly found out that in RAID5 the Intel PCH crumbles. Write throughput sits around 25 Mbps max. So That's why I've turned to hardware RAID. Plus I would like to use RAID6.
Anyway, I've tried changing to slot from LEGACY to EFI. I've tried both slots capable of PCIe 8x. Nothing... Nothing in POST. Nothing in BIOS. In fact BIOS reports the slot empty.
So aside from a dead card, is there anything else that would cause this?
