Flashing an LSI SAS 9201-16i – correctly

Three weeks ago, I thought I had flashed my new LSI SAS 9201-16i. I had not.

When I powered up the system via mfsBSD, I could see the device, but during the boot process, there was no splash screen.

I now believe this should always be a signal that you have not correctly flashed the card.

Finally, I went back to basics. I went back to something I did in photos.

I used UEFI because I knew that worked before.

This time, I first erased the card before flashing both the firmware and the BIOS in one step.

After this, the splash screen appeared during the boot process:

LSI SAS 9201-16i splash screen
LSI SAS 9201-16i splash screen

From there, the system booted up and is working just fine.
