ML310 won't accept 250GB drives on MegaRaid controller

How can this be "fixed"?
Bios or firmware update?
I cannot seem to find an appropriate file on the downloads page.

Re: ML310 won't accept 250GB drives on MegaRaid controller

I'm sure that a server bought in 2003 would support at some level HDDs larger than 128BG. BIOS is up to date.
Is there a fix for this?

As if they lost a bet and ended up using these LSI controllers. I've never seen a server product with so little support or information... Can these controllers be updated to allow > 137GB Disks? or not?...

Sorry to see that in 6 months, HP couldn't drop a line... I am not surprised that a built-in RAID controller on the entry level server is so cheap and hard to get support info for, but this thing is really bad...

Fortunately for us, this server was only needed as a temporary fix for an no longer existing problem.

Good luck on finding a solution to your issues.
