I recently purchased some S1200KP boards (RST version). Problem is the boards were shipped (from Intel Disti oddly enough) with the old BIOS that does not support 3TB drives. RST firmware on the latest BIOS available on the Intel website also does not have the version of BIOS needed. I contacted Technical Support and they said that they had the same version on the website!! Can someone point me to the location of the updated BIOS for the S1200KP that has the later RST firmware of at least version 10.6.0.1091? I really need to get this product out the door so thanks for any help.
I see that the S1200KP has BIOS 12 out, and that the THOL at http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s1200kp/sb/CS-032760.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s1200kp/sb/CS-032760.htm doesn't list any 3 TB drives.
Where are you seeing that a new BIOS will be released, that supports 3 TB drives?
Thanks for your response. I should be more clear, sorry, I need the BIOS with the updated OpROM version 10.6.0.1091. I previously purchased these boards from Supermicro and they had the updated version. I am using the RST version of the board and according to this Intel page http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-032920.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-032920.htm the 3TB drives should work with no problems.
BIOS 18 is now available for download, which includes RST 10.8:
