comment Experience with AMCC 3ware 9650se raid cards? Ours seems dead
As for the procedure, we had been trying desperately to boot it in the original machine - leaving it on, leaving it off, booting multiple times with power on, booting multiple times with hard-power-off between boots, reseating it, switching slots. Finally we pulled it out of the Silicon Mechanics machine and stuck it in the Fedora machine. From what I remember going on, we only had to boot it once for the OS to be able to read it, twice to get the BIOS to kick back in. You'll want to play with power - leaving it out of the machine for a while, leaving it on in the machine for a while, etc.

Checking through the Fedora releases, it was probably 12 or 13, likely 12, given that the machine we brought it to life in was a freshly installed machine. I don't remember anything about what drivers were installed, but they would've been whatever was available at the time.

Thanks for the input, we did try to re-seat the card many times, tried difference pcie slots, etc, all to no avail.

Ahh, google-fu needed some tweaking - mjmwired.net/kernel/Documentation/MSI-HOWTO.txt

Thanks, that's encouraging to hear. We're buying the exact same card we had before, don't want to change up anything unless we really have to.

Also, what do you mean by 'enable MSI'? That's not a bios option i'm familiar with. We're using PhoenixBIOS on the mainboard, if it's any help.
