I'm trying to get a IT bios onto a SATA/SAS controller and all my spare HW is currently still BIOS based or doesn't have any PCIe slots (eg NUCs etc).

 

Anyone in my area got a machine I can either borrow or just grab an hour on to finish the FW upgrade?

Thanks for all the offers. Managed to flash the card to IT mode. Appears the issue is my older machines aren't compatible with this card so I might need to look for a different unit anyway.

Interested in the card if you're trying to offload price depending..

 

Edit:

 

Just noticed it needs PCIe 3.0 so will have to pass.
