  1. Ahh, I see now. So I did that and tried to update through the storage manager and I get an error. Something like the Microcode failed. [sTART_RANT] I am so frustrated right now, why can't anything be simple and work as it is supposed to. Maybe I should go the bootable DVD route. But then I am sure I would come unstuck in imgBurn. I tried making a bootable USB with no luck. Why am I so stupid when it comes to this stuff. [/END_RANT] Again, any help would be very much appreciated.
  2. I did that, but all I have is the .exe file and I am guessing that is my problem. What I don't understand is that it says to copy each individual .ufi file to floppy disk , but the download only has an .exe file. What is with that? This is the Documentation on the same page as the firmware download. "Installation Instruction: The controller firmware can be flashed using Adaptec Storage Manager (ASM) or the flash utility AFU that is included with this download. AFU Instructions: Once the files are extracted please copy each *.ufi file individually to a separate floppy disk. If this is not done, you may encounter read errors from one of the files when flashing the controller. The expanded files can also be copied to a USB device or CD-R. Shut down the operating system and reboot to DOS from a bootable floppy disk, USB device or CD-R. Insert the media with the update files. Run the flash utility program named AFU.EXE included in this download to backup the current BIOS and flash the new BIOS image. " Am I missing something here? Thanks for the help so far.
  3. I am having a real difficult time updating the firmware on this controller. I have tried to make a bootable USB and I failed at that, so I am trying to do it through the storage manager. The firmware is at this link, http://www.adaptec.com/en-us/speed/raid/asr/fw_bios/5805_fw_b18948_exe.htm This is the latest firmware, or so I am told, but I can't seem to get it to work. Any help would be very much appreciated as I have already spent two weeks trying to get these controllers to work, especially with 4tb disks. Cheer dave

    Can't log into Adaptec Storage Manager?

    OK, I re-installed the storage manager and it works now. Thanks.
  5. Hey, new to the forum. I have two Adaptec 5805 on Windows Home Server 64bit and I can't for the life of me login to the Storage manager. I have tried my server name and login password, but it always comes back as saying "Invalid Login name or password". Is there a work around for this? Cheers Dave
