install smartarray efi drivers

Hi!
I have a problem with my SmartArray controller on rx7640. I logged in EFI shell and couldn't find SmartArray:

And there's no needed driver for SA. I think, i must install drivers for SmartArray, but i cannot find the manual, how to do it. Can anyone tell me, what should i read? And btw, i cannot find an efi driver in "Download drivers and software" page...

Which SA are you trying to install?

Re: install smartarray efi drivers

Indeed, not all smart arrays are "supported" in an rx7640. If you are casting about for drivers, you might also consider making certain your system is up-to-date on the rest of the firmware, even if you find that you are trying to install an unsupported smart array card in the rx7640.

While I don't know it is up-to-date, if you go to http://www.hp.com/go/rx7640 and then click on options and accessories you can scroll down to a list of array controllers for the rx7640.

Re: install smartarray efi drivers

Hi,

the commands you used should indeed give you something like this:

for devtree :

Ctrl[53] Smart Array 6400 Controller
Ctrl[54] Smart Array 6400 Controller


for drivers:

4E 00000240 B - - - 1 3 Smart Array 5x/6x Driver v2.40 S=00 B=8F D=4 F=0 I=1
4F 00000240 ? - - - - - Smart Array 5x/6x Driver v2.40 S=00 B=8F D=5 F=0 I=1

(this output is for a SA6404 controller)


Can you try the following commands at EFI shell and see if that then shows you the Smartarray or not.


- reconnect -r (to reload all option ROMs
in the system)

- search all


Do you see the Smartarray BIOS banner when the partition boots ? Something like what i copied here below, if you do , then that is the time to press F8 (or ESC 8) to configure the Smartarray, alternatively you can also run 'reconnect -r' and press F8 at that time.
