Re: DQ67OW + Core i5 2500
Yes, sorry about the lack of updates, this was caused by my Adaptec 5805 *not* working with this board, or probably EVER going to work. This chipset uses a new type of bios called "EFI". All great and everything, but Adaptec cards can not handle this.
Inserting the card results in a black screen during booting. Conversed with support unfixable at this moment.
Other users report the same problems.
As a replacement storage card I have ordered a Intel SASUC8I
. This card is an OEM of LSI based on the LSI 1068E chipset which should be supported just fine within ESX(i).
I'm currently using all 6 sata ports. 2xVertex2 + 4x2TB Samsung. The Vertex2 work fine on the 6Gbps port, but the Samsungs would not work correctly on these ports. But, that could also be caused by the chieftec backplanes I'm using. But I can confirm that using all 6 connectors work just fine.
Further then that, I'll update the main post to reflect the correct information!
