Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I made a bit of a boo boo last night in upgrading the BIOS in a Silicon Image Sil3132 eSATA adapter. It's a RAID controller in a server.

I accidently flashed it with the wrong BIOS ;-) Not the end of the world as this card only cost £15 but I'm trying to flash it with the correct BIOS as it won't obviously work anymore.

Silicon Image supply a DOS program for flashing and I thought I'd use the Erase function to get rid of the old BIOS.

Any idea how long this should take? It's been sat at the "Erasing memory" prompt for about 15 minutes.

Thanks, Rob.
