Hello, We have 3 SR1695WBAC with any LSI HBA we cannot access the LSI BIOS but when we put the same card ( LSI SAS 9200-8E ) into another system we are able to access the LSI BIOS. Its hard to believe that any LSI HBA is incompatible with this system, could it be a setting I am missing?
Thanks in advance.
Try to disable Quiet Boot in the BIOS. Though it's highly recommended to select a RAID card from http://serverconfigurator.intel.com/sctthol.aspx?search=Server+System+SR1695WBAC http://serverconfigurator.intel.com/sctthol.aspx?search=Server+System+SR1695WBAC.
